If you have ever wondered, “How did they win that one?” when someone gets a big verdict or settlement, don't miss out on OAJ’s Mentoring Program Class of 2021. Our selected mentees will be able to ask some of our most experienced attorneys how they do it, along with everything else you may have wondered about, on a one-to-one basis. Our 2021 Mentoring Program will explore “how to” questions and learn what it takes to make a practice a success. Our full-year program includes one-to-one sessions, group sessions, lunches, dinners, CLEs, and much more. Watch for the 2021 application deadline, list of mentors, and more for your chance to join the mentoring program!
