The purpose of this article is to reinforce the need for mentoring of candidate attorneys. Attorneys, like any other profession, go through a set of assessments and training in order to be admitted as attorneys and to practice for their own account. One of the training interventions that they go through is serving articles of clerkship, where they obtain practical exposure to practice of law. This exposure is obtained under the guidance or supervision of a principal attorney at the law firm where the articles are served. An alternative though, is available where the training takes place at the law clinics under the supervision of clinicians who are lawyers within those law clinics.
