									                        Achievement Mentoring Program
                             Mentee Questionnaire

 To assist students in Connecticut to become successful attorneys, the Connecticut Asian
 Pacific American Bar Association (CAPABA) and the Connecticut Hispanic Bar Association
 (CHBA) have established the Achievement Mentoring Program. Under this jointly
 administered program, students who are in law school, or who plan to attend law school, will
 be matched with a member of CAPABA or CHBA with a shared area of interest. Through
 the Program, students will have an opportunity to gain information about the actual practice
 of law and to discuss other questions or concerns they have about law school and their
 careers with their mentor.

 If you would like to participate in this Program, please complete this questionnaire and return
 it to either of the two Achievement Mentoring Program Coordinators:
