by Minden Press-Herald

New Orleans, LA – Louisiana Supreme Court Chief Justice John L. Weimer and the Associate Justices announced today the Court’s unanimous support for the Louisiana State Bar  Association’s Transition Into Program (TIP) mentoring program. The program, which is voluntary,  matches newly admitted members of the Bar with an experienced attorney, who serves as a  mentor.  

“The Transition Into Practice program, which has been in existence since 2015, allows veteran  attorneys to share their knowledge, advice, and hands-on experience with those who are just  starting their careers,” said LSBA President Shayna Sonnier. “I encourage all newly admitted attorneys to take full advantage of this program, which will help give them the tools they need to  be successful in today’s legal profession.” 

Chief Justice Weimer stated, “The Court is deeply grateful for the work and leadership of the Bar  and its steadfast desire to support and improve the legal profession and provide mentorship and  guidance to new attorneys. The Transition Into Practice program has proven over years of hard  work and stewardship by the Bar its value to newly admitted attorneys, who would be well-served  by participating in the program.”
