Corporate Counsel Section
The Corporate Counsel Section of the New York State Bar Association
is comprised of more than 1,600 attorneys who serve as in-house counsel
to corporations and other business entities, as well as attorneys in law
firms, government, and academic institutions. The Section members
collaborate on activities that enhance the role of in-house corporate
counsel as contributing members and leaders of their communities, the
legal profession and the Bar Association, and provide a medium for
cooperation, encouragement and assistance in the resolution of problems
common to them and the legal profession, to their mutual benefit and the
benefit of the membership of the Bar Association, the legal profession
at large, the substantive body of law in New York, and the general
administration of justice throughout the state.

Mentor/Mentee Program for Corporate Counsel
Now is your chance to mentor an exceptional young lawyer.
Every year, the Corporate Counsel Section’s Kenneth G. Standard
Diversity Internship Program places several law students with diverse
backgrounds in in-house summer internships, including internships with
AllianceBernstein, Pepsi, and Con Edison, among others, in
2012. Interns are selected through a competitive process from law
schools across New York State. The success of this program is one
of the Section’s achievements.
The Section is currently seeking mentors for up to 30 recent alumni
from the Kenneth G. Standard Diversity Internship Program. You can
be at a firm, in-house or in government; you can live or practice
anywhere in NY state; and you can have any level of experience and
background. You just have to be willing to share a little
time, knowledge and perspective with a new lawyer.
This commitment will not be time consuming – maybe only an hour
or two per month. However, in one hour per month, a mentor can make
a disproportionate impact on a young career.
If interested, kindly complete the questionnaire
and return it by email or fax to Patricia Johnson at email@example.com, phone or fax
518.487.5688. You will be contacted with detailed information.
