The New York City Mentor Handbook. Tenth Anniversary Edition.
Breck, Judy, Ed.
This handbook presents a description of the New York City Mentor program. It is designed to provide guidelines for the participating schools and law firms as well as an explanation of the program for potential participants. The program pairs law firms, solo practitioners, and corporate legal departments with public high schools. Lawyers visit classes, assist in court trips, and have students visit their law firm, enabling students to see first-hand the inner-workings of a firm. Lawyers serve as role models and expose students to all law-related professions. The handbook provides a summary of the basic four-event Mentor program as well as of the activities and achievements of the lawyers, students, teachers, judges, and school officials involved the New York City and other Mentor programs around the country.
