Los Angeles Superior Court Presiding Judge Eric C. Taylor will give opening remarks at the upcoming 2022 Judicial Mentor Program Outreach Workshop.
The workshop will be held from noon – 1:30 p.m. on Wednesday, April 20, 2022, and will be followed by small virtual breakout rooms in which attorneys will have the opportunity to discuss perceived obstacles to successful appointment to the bench as well as sensitivity and awareness around inclusivity for judicial applicants with disabilities.
The first Workshop was held in November 2020, and since then has served more than 2,200 members of the legal community through mentoring, outreach presentations, and workshops. Since the program’s inception, approximately 100 judicial mentor volunteers have been paired with more than 170 attorneys from diverse backgrounds.
Mentor judges meet with the attorneys to provide information about the application process, answer their questions and suggest career steps they can take to become qualified judicial applicants. The mentor relationship is expected to last for one year and to include four mentor-mentee meetings within that year.
Registration closes April 19. All attorneys are welcome to participate in this completely inclusive event. Register now at OUTREACH WORKSHOP Survey (surveymonkey.com)
