Mentor Relationships Play Key Role in Attorney Readiness

Abstract

Law schools have been criticized for not doing enough to help their students develop the practical skills they need to practice law. Although mentoring and the apprenticeship model has deep and noble roots in the legal profession, this has withered somewhat in the wake of the Great Recession as scarce resources have put pressure on legal employers not to hire new attorneys or train them rigorously. This article explores some ways that New Hampshire defies this recent trend and specifically examines some of the programs at UNH Law that have garnered national attention.
