John J. Schrot, Jr. and Donald F. Carney, Jr. are serving as mentors for the Women’s Bar Association (“WBA”). The WBA is part of the Women Lawyers Association of Michigan whose mission is to advance the interests of women members of the legal profession, to promote improvements in the administration of justice, and to promote equality and social justice for all people.
John and Don will mentor law students from Cooley Law School, Wayne State University Law School, and the University of Detroit Mercy Law School. The program provides students with exposure to the actual practice of law while they are in law school. Participants have the opportunity to reach out to their mentor with concerns about class options, career choices, job searches, interviews, or other issues. The program provides law students with real life practical guidance and advice.
