Pilot Mentoring Program Begins Jan. 1, 2015: More Mentors Needed The LSBA and its Committee on the Profession are encouraging more mentors to participate in the Transition Into Practice (TIP) pilot mentoring program, set to begin Jan. 1, 2015, in the Baton Rouge, Shreveport and greater New Orleans areas. Through the program, approved by the Louisiana Supreme Court and sponsored by CNA/Gilsbar, new lawyers admitted into practice in 2014 will be paired with mentors. Mentors must be in good standing, have no disciplinary history and must have at least 10 years of experience. Mentors can receive up to 6 hours of free CLE credit by volunteering. For more information, to register as a mentor and to view video messages from Louisiana Supreme Court Chief Justice Bernette Joshua Johnson and LSBA Committee on the Profession Chair Barry H.
