APAWLA is co-sponsoring this speed mentorship event and seeking volunteer judges and lawyers to participate as mentors for the event.

The program pairs mentor judges and lawyers with students who spend a short time chatting before moving on to a new pairing. The goal is to introduce students to a number of potential contacts in the legal community. The program will be structured to offer as much small group mentoring as possible. We welcome all mentors.

The CA Bar Exam is arguably one of the hardest bar exams. It can be a struggle trying to figure out what went wrong and what your next steps should be. For that reason, we created this event to create a supportive community for repeat bar exam takers. Attorneys who have successfully passed the bar after a repeat attempt will share both their experience and advice about the process.
