August 3, 2014 - We completed a very successful Mentoring Program at the Maryland Professionalism Center. Review some of the reflections from mentors and mentees below.
Thank you for developing the Court of Appeals’ Mentoring Program. My mentor, Jennifer Dill, was truly inspirational in showing me a measured, caring attorney and member of her community. We discussed challenges in being a female professional and she introduced me to several people in my field of interest; energy policy. I’m glad I participated in the program and will highly recommend it to future grads.

Although my background as a family law attorney seems to be unlikely to be helpful to an energy policy mentee, it turns out we both benefitted from the pairing. It certainly stretched me to reach out in areas I’d never ventured and reinforced those skills that are so crucial to building a successful career as a new female lawyer.
I hope that you will continue to turn to me as a resource for new lawyers in the Southern Maryland area.

I deeply appreciate the opportunity to serve this program. This is a life enriching opportunity. I get as much or more from the program than I feel I have given. Thank you.
