Each mentoring pair will determine whether they prefer to follow a formal, structured mentoring plan or take an unstructured, informal mentoring approach.
For those mentoring pairs seeking to utilize a mentoring plan to structure and facilitate their mentoring relationship, CAMP has created a number of model mentoring plans for review and implementation. CAMP recognizes that mentoring is necessary not just for the newly admitted attorney. Instead, we believe that attorneys can take advantage of mentoring at various times during their careers. To that end, we have created model mentoring plans to guide you in structuring your mentoring relationship.
Each mentoring plan can be modified by the mentoring pair to fit the specific needs of the mentee. However, to qualify for CLE credit, each plan must cover certain subject areas including:
- Personal and Professional Development, including work-life balance, inclusiveness & diversity, and wellness
- The Colorado Bar and Legal Community
- History and Importance of the Legal Profession
- Colorado Rules of Professional Conduct, Professionalism, and Civility
- Practical Practice Area Experience
- Law Office Management and In-Office Procedures
- Working With Clients
- Pro Bono & Civic Involvement
Each mentoring pair will determine how to structure their relationship and how long they will work together as mentor and mentee. Generally, we ask that mentors be prepared to commit to working with their mentee for one year. Afterwards, both of you may mutually choose to maintain a relationship; but for purposes of the program, the mentoring relationship ends at a determined date.
CLE credit is available to mentors who work formally with their mentee and complete a structured mentoring plan within 12 months.
