The OCBA Mentor on Demand (MOD) Program is an innovative
web-based mentoring program designed exclusively for our OCBA
Young Lawyers Division members ("YLD").
A first of its kind program in California, Mentor on Demand
provides OCBA Young Lawyers Division members free online access
to a virtual mentor 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
The inaugural MOD Committee, chaired by Teresa A. McQueen
Esq., and Dean J. Zipser, Esq., in an effort to provide our
YLD members with valuable membership benefits, brought together
a unique group of individuals for the purpose of designing
a virtual mentoring program geared towards the young lawyer.
The MOD Committee's goal was to supplement traditional face
to face mentoring with virtual mentoring programs that are
accessible wherever and whenever the young lawyer can find
the time. To achieve its goal the MOD Committee approached
a number of Orange County attorneys who are recognized as
experts in their fields and asked them to impart - in ten
minutes or less - invaluable insights and tips to the new
lawyer via video presentations.
The Committee's efforts resulted in the creation and launch
of Mentor on Demand -Virtual on-demand mentoring
in 10-mintues or less! MOD offers something for everyone by
delivering on-demand mentoring on a variety of subjects in
a way that fits into the young lawyer's busy schedule.
