Free Mentoring:
Overcome Computer Phobia

Learn to send and receive emails and to use the Internet to enrich your professional and personal life.

The Communications Committee of The American Bar Association Senior Lawyers Division and the Senior Lawyers Committee of The State Bar of California, in cooperation with many of the law schools of America, can provide some lawyers with free one on one computer training for up to 5 hours.

A law student or new lawyer will train you at your office, or at the law school computer facilities, or any other mutually agreeable location at a mutually convenient time.

All mentoring will be one on one and personalized to your individual learning needs. No classes with other students! No specific timetable! Learn at your own speed!

The general guideline is as follows:

A. A local law school (possibly your own if you wish) will provide your student mentor.

B. The student mentor will give you 3 to 5 hours of training to accomplish the course curricula.

C. Three hours will be enough for those with some prior skills. Five hours will be enough for those with no prior experience.

D. The senior lawyer if requested, will mentor the law student or recent graduate with an hour or two of career counseling. (This time is in addition to the 3 to 5 hours of training time.)

E. The senior lawyer will be asked to evaluate the student mentor, the course materials and training methods in order to improve the program.

F. All teaching will be at the mutual convenience of the senior lawyer and the student mentor.

G. At the completion of the course, the senior lawyer will be able to send and receive emails, do basic research on the Internet and will have direct links to the ABA Senior Lawyer web site, State & Local and International Bar Association Senior Lawyer web sites and the Law School(s) requested by the senior lawyer.

H. The prototype curricula and teaching materials were developed by The University of West Los Angeles School of Law, in cooperation with the Lawyer’s Club of Los Angeles County and The State Bar of California Senior Lawyers Committee.

I. Every law school in and outside of the United States will be given the opportunity to offer the computer mentoring program to their graduates and other senior lawyers in their community. Teaching materials will be provided at no cost to the law school requesting assistance. Appropriate acknowledgment to The American Bar Association Senior Lawyers Division, The State Bar of California Senior Lawyers Committee, The Lawyers Club of Los Angeles County and The University of West Los Angeles School of Law would be appreciated. The materials can also be made available to other organizations on request.
