AHLA Collaborates with CVS Health to Launch a New Mentorship Pilot Advancing Diversity in the Next Generation of Attorneys
- December 08, 2022
Washington, D.C. – AHLA recently collaborated with CVS Health to launch a new pilot program – The 2023 Bridges to Law Pilot – to help address potential barriers that developing attorneys may face in their careers.
The 2023 Bridges to Law Pilot program is a one-year program that supports racially and culturally diverse new attorneys. The goal of the program is to provide support to new attorneys to build professional relationships, promote leadership and professional development, identify career planning opportunities, and provide guidance on developing competence in specific fields of practice within health care law and other practice areas within health care companies.
This is a 12-month pilot for up to 20 attorneys who are new to the practice of law or new to their practice area. There is a minimum one-hour-per-month time commitment, but this self-paced mentorship allows mentors and mentees to set their schedules. Those selected for the pilot will participate in the entire 12-month experience and provide honest and open feedback on their experiences.
AHLA membership is not required; participants will be provided with an AHLA digital subscription for the duration of the mentorship when they are not AHLA members. This subscription provides access to the online communities found on AHLA’s website (www.americanhealthlaw.org), the Health Law Weekly and the Newsstand on State Health Law News Issues e-newsletters; AHLA’s online monthly membership magazine, Health Law Connections; and access to current and past issues of the Health Law Weekly and the Journal of Health and Life Sciences Law.
Applications are being accepted through December 30, 2022.
