AAML Mentorship – Inspiring Stories
(How You Too May Enjoy the Many Benefits of AAML Mentorship.)
Please join the AAML Mentorship Committee for a presentation hosted by the Honorable Patricia Lucas of the Santa Clara County Superior Court and our very own C. Clay Greene, Jennifer Crum, and Romy Taubman.
The Northern California Chapter of the AAML is the clear leader in Mentorship at the National Level. Most recently, our NorCal Mentorship video starring Fellows Sherry Cassedy and Geniveve Ruskus was distributed by the AAML National Membership Subcommittee on Mentorship. It will be featured on the AAML National Website.
Mentorship and its impact is a topic near and dear to Judge Lucas’ heart. For this reason, she volunteered to speak to us in conversation with Clay Greene about, among other things, how the Court can tell when and if a lawyer has been properly mentored, how important mentorship is to our profession, and, from a more self-interested perspective, how important good mentorship can be to the reputations of our law firms and the related advantages for our clients to have new lawyers well-mentored.
Judge Lucas served as the Presiding Judge of the Family Division of the Santa Clara Superior Court for over two years and can speak with candor about the particular importance of mentorship in our field.
Clay Greene has served as a settlement officer, private judge pro tem, and has been a mentor through the NorCal Mentorship program, in addition to the litany of leadership roles he has held in the Marin County and California Family Law communities.
Jennifer and Romy will complement the discussion with their experiences leading AAML NorCal Mentorship Groups. They will provide honest anecdotes of both positive and negative experiences and answer any questions about what it is like to lead an AAML Nor Cal Mentorship Group.
We look forward to being inspired by your presence and participation.
Honorable Patricia Lucas
C. Clay Greene
