RBIC Robert G. Heisermann Mentoring Programs
Our Inn has three separate mentoring programs. Two of these programs run the length of the Inn’s year (starting in September). The third is a special program specific to the annual Bar Exam calendar and runs for the two months preceding the bar exam.
For the two full-year programs, we create mentoring pairs or “match-ups”, and then each match-up will select the program that works the best for them. For the Bar Exam Survival program, we maintain a list of mentors who want to be a touchstone for our members taking the Bar Exam and create the match-ups each winter and spring.
To update your information for the full year programs, please go to our Mentoring Intake Form:
To join the Bar Exam Survival Program, either as a mentor or mentee, please e-mail rhonebracket [at sign] gmail [dot] com.

The Full Mentoring Program (CAMP Sponsored)
The Full Mentoring Program is a mentoring program designed for match-ups that want a structured program, requiring 8 face to face meetings and around 13-16 hours of contact between September 1 and August 1 of the following year.
If the mentee is an Associate Barrister in their first three years of practice and the mentor is approved by CAMP, the match-up can participate in the CAMP portion of the program, which can result in the match-up receiving up to 15 CLE credits (including 2 ethics credits). (Mentees can receive credit the first time they are a CAMP Mentee, Mentors can receive credits the first time they are a CAMP Mentor during each three-year CLE reporting cycle. Match-ups can participate more than once, but will only receive CLE when qualified.)
The RBIC Full Mentoring Program has a number of supporting documents, which can be downloaded here:
(Non-CAMP Full Mentoring Program Match-Ups should use the “Design Your Own Plan” template to create their meeting discussion topics.)
The Virtual Mentoring Program
The Virtual Mentoring Program is the new name for RBIC’s on-going program. This program runs from September 1 – May 1 and requires three in person meetings and otherwise monthly “virtual” contact via phone or video conferencing (such as Skype, FaceTime, etc.).
