Utah will become the third state in the nation to require that newly admitted lawyers participate in a formal mentoring program, and Rodney Snow—President of Clyde Snow and member of the Utah State Bar Commission—has been heading the effort. Mr. Snow has studied the mentoring concept in depth and helped draft a program that has come to be called the New Lawyer Training Program. Under this program, new lawyers must work one on one with a mentor who gives them practical advice and helps them learn the basic skills of legal practice. The Utah Supreme Court approved the New Lawyer Training Program in December 2008, making it mandatory for anyone admitted to the Utah State Bar.
