The Florida Association for Women Lawyers at Stetson co-sponsored its annual Speed Mentoring event at the Chester H. Ferguson Law Center with the Hillsborough Association for Women Lawyers on Sept. 22.

The event provided students with opportunities to network with local attorneys and judges in the Tampa Bay area and to choose mentors for the upcoming year.

With well over 100 mentors and mentees in attendance, this annual event had its largest turnout since it first began in 2005.
