    The Brooklyn Law School Women’s Leadership Network will hold an exciting pilot program designed to help professionals at all levels advance in their careers and expand personal networks through an innovative mentoring program, Mentoring Circles.

    Brooklyn Law School’s Mentoring Circles will be comprised of groups of 10-15 graduates who will meet informally with facilitators to discuss current trends in the workplace as well as challenges faced in building and maintaining a successful – and fulfilling – career.

    In this type of environment, mentees benefit from multiple mentoring relationships: those between the Women’s Leadership Circle facilitators and the mentees as well as the peer mentoring relationships that will develop among the mentees themselves.

    The pilot program focuses on three professional tracks, In-House Counsel; Government and Regulatory Affairs; and Media and Entertainment Law. Information on the facilitators follows.
