The mentorship program is designed to be a professional learning experience for the mentee and the mentor alike. With this goal in mind, participants may be eligible to receive MCLE credit upon successful completion of individual sessions of the mentorship program; however, MCLE credit approval is not guaranteed.
All attorneys who complete a session of the mentorship program and wish to receive MCLE credits are required to submit individual applications to the WSBA.
For Example: When the mentors and mentees begin a session of the Mentoring Program they are to submit a Form 1 with supporting documents in accordance with APR 11. Instructions are found at WSBA MCLE's website.
To apply for credit, at the conclusion of an individual session, the mentors and mentees are to submit attendance and evaluation materials to the WSBA to apply for professional education credits. Detailed explanations and examples are included in the instructions. The WSBA is the final authority in deciding the approval of professional education credits.
Additionally, although attorneys are encouraged to continue serving as a mentor and to volunteer in successive years, MCLE credit is only available for the sessions completed in the first successfully‐completed rotation of a mentorship term.
