CJA Mentoring Program

Mentors who are experienced and respected members of the federal criminal bar, including private counsel, federal defenders, former prosecutors, and CJA Panel members, will be paired with qualified Mentees. Qualified Mentee candidates include state and federal practitioners with five or more years of criminal experience, including substantial trial and in-court experience, as well as strong research and writing skills, and who are admitted to the Eastern District Bar or will be admitted as soon as possible. Orientation and CLE programs for Mentors and Mentees will be coordinated by the Committee.
