On behalf of the Young Lawyers Division (YLD) of the King County Bar Association, we write to ask for your help in identifying nominees for the Mentor of the Year Award. All finalists will be recognized at the YLD Winter Soiree on February 7, 2019, where the winner will be announced. YLD mentors provide the invaluable gift of time, teaching, and training to new lawyers.
As members of KCBA’s Diversity Committee, we hope to assist the YLD in creating a broad, diverse pool of nominees. Could you share this request for nominations to your membership or others whom you believe might know of a worthy nominee? To nominate a mentor, the nominator should submit an a short explanation of why the mentor deserves the award. Specific examples of assistance provided by the mentor are helpful. Nominations should be between two paragraphs and no more than one page. Nominations and any questions about the award or nomination process, should be submitted to Anna Robson at AnnaR@kcba.org by January 14, 2019. Nominators must be current YLD members, defined as a lawyer 36 years old or under or in the first five years of practices, whichever comes later.
