Attorney Mentor Program

One of the most valuable aspects of the TFAS Summer Law Fellowship is the Attorney Mentor Program through which Fellows are paired with an experienced lawyer who will serve as a professional mentor throughout the summer and beyond. Mentors are available to provide career advice and networking contacts as well as tips for living in D.C. and recommendations for the best spots in the city for food and entertainment activities. Mentor matches are made based on a Fellow’s career goals, professional interests, and other factors such as law school or hometown.

“With the guidance of TFAS and my mentor, I now know the direction in which I want to take my legal career.”
