The Mentor-Mentee Program of the Houston Bar Association
For more than 30 years, attorney Frank Mann has led his family practice firm in Houston, Texas, assisting clients in matters ranging from child custody to divorce. Active in his field, Frank Mann participates in the mentor program of the Houston Bar Association (HBA).
The HBA formed in 1870 to uphold high legal standards, including a strict observation of the Constitution of the United States and the constitution of the State of Texas, and to avail lawyers of a number of educational resources. As the fifth largest body of its kind in the U.S., the association currently features a voluntary membership of more than 11,000 legal professionals, and as part of providing resources and services to its members, it has established a mentor-mentee program.
In the HBA mentor-mentee program, new attorneys have the opportunity to partner with more experienced lawyers and to receive one-on-one career guidance. The mentor must possess a minimum of five years of licensure, and the mentee must have accumulated three years or fewer of experience in the field. The relationship between lawyers lasts one year at minimum. Applicants interested in the program can learn more at www.hba.org.
