Become a Mentor

Are you an experienced lawyer interested in sharing your wisdom and guidance with young attorneys just joining the legal profession? If your answer is yes, then sign up to be a Mentor. This program allows you to assist young attorneys seeking answers, advice, and for some, an ongoing professional relationship as they navigate through entering the practice of law. It’s a great way to help new and young attorneys and to give back to the legal profession.

If you are interested in becoming a Mentor, please complete and submit the Mentor Signup Form below.  Once your submission is received, your name with a link to your KBA public profile and any other provided information will be added to the list of Mentors made available to new attorneys admitted to practice in Kentucky for five years or less. Note: Mentors must be KBA members with five or more years of practice experience. Please refer to the Mentor Disclaimer and Release information for other eligibility details.

If you would like to change the information listed or remove yourself from the list, contact our Program & Publications Coordinator at sblackburn@kybar.org or 502-564-3795 ext. 226.

I understand that as a mentor participating in the Kentucky Bar Association Mentor Program, any advice I provide is solely for the purpose of guidance. I understand that the mentee will not rely upon my advice and/or ments as legal advice. I agree that I am not representing any of the mentee's clients or rendering legal advice to any client through the mentee.

I understand and agree that the information I provide will not be relied upon by the mentee as a substitute for his/her own independent judgment or professional legal opinions. Neither I nor the Kentucky Bar Association provides any warranty for information shared, divulged or given to the mentee.

I recognize and agree that if I receive knowledge that the mentee has engaged in professional misconduct, I may be obligated to report the conduct, if required by SCR 3.130(8.3) of the Kentucky Rules of Professional Conduct.

I hereby agree that in no event will I file suit or otherwise attempt to hold liable for damages, the Kentucky Bar Association, any mentee, member, staff or agent of the Kentucky Bar Association as a result of my participation in this program. As a mentor, I agree to indemnify and hold harmless the Kentucky Bar Association from any and all claims, suits, actions or proceedings of any kind arising out of, or in connection with, any advice or guidance I give in relation to this program.

Authorization is hereby given to determine from the Kentucky Bar Association Bar Counsel that I am a member in good standing before the Bar of Kentucky. I agree to accept a status of suspension from serving as a mentor during such time as a complaint may be pending and until such time as the complaint is either dismissed or the participant-member is permitted to resume practice by the Kentucky Supreme Court.
