NAVIGATE RESOURCES: Table of Contents InfoNet aila.org Find a Member ? ! Contact a Mentor Shop Agora FOR MORE STARTER RESOURCES: Get started, get connected, and get involved as a new member of AILA! webinars. There is a wealth of information out there; you just have to look for it. Also, I highly recommend the use of a qualified mentor. Find a local practicing attorney that you respect and see if he or she is willing to guide you. AILA's New England Chapter has a mentor program that pairs newer lawyers with experienced ones for a more individualized experience. Our chapter has a New Members Division where newer practitioners can listen to talks given by seasoned members and ask questions. If your local chapter does not have a New Members Division, suggest to your chapter chair that you start one. Moreover, attending chapter meetings are a great way to sharpen your skills and meet other practitioners. The New England Chapter offers a teleconference option for attorneys who cannot physically join meetings. Launching an Immigration Practice (Online Tutorial) FREE! > Tips & Tricks for Avoiding Malpractice Traps (Conference Recording) Purchase > AILA's Immigration Practice Starter Set (Books and Digital Toolboxes) Purchase > In sum, it behooves all new practitioners to get involved and take advantage of all available resources before opening for business. After all, at the end of the day, every client that walks through your door is counting on you to mind your Ps and Qs in order to help make his or her dreams a reality. 1 See, e.g., Mass. R. Prof. C. 1.1(1) and 7.4. t your education with AILA nferences, and webinars." J ULY/ A UGUST 2013 37
