The Justice & Diversity Center

Judicial Mentorship Program


Launched in 2009, the Judicial Mentorship Program creates opportunities for judges, commissioners, and administrative law judges to meet and provide insight and information to diverse attorneys in at least their 3rd year of practice for mentorship purposes. 

The purpose of this program is to develop strong professional relationships between judges and attorneys, such that diverse attorneys are inspired and encouraged to pursue a judicial career and have the tools and information necessary to pursue their goals.

This program provides resources and information about the judicial application and appointment processes.
