"Imagine if, at the click of a mouse, young lawyers could receive mentoring from some of the legal profession’s most highly regarded practitioners." That’s how Bob Ambrogi opened his post about The Ten Minute Mentor yesterday. Yes, this idea is not only a reality, but an extraordinarily well-executed reality recently launched by the Texas Young Lawyers Association and Texas Bar CLE. So far there are over 100 streaming videos from experienced lawyers placed on the web for free. I can’t speak highly enough of this idea. It is inspired. It is so difficult for young lawyers to establish a relationship with a mentor these days. Everyone is so busy. Getting ten good minutes of advice from a great lawyer is extremely valuable and having access to it 7/24 is, as the saying goes, priceless.
Since this is an Oklahoma-based weblog, you can imagine how tough it is for me to brag on Texas. Thanks for making this tremendous resource available to young lawyers everywhere, not just in your state. Not only am I having a second "site of the week" this week for this great accomplishment, but I’ll be showing The Ten Minute Mentor off at ABA TECHSHOW 2005 during "60 Sites in 60 Minutes."
