Congratulations on successful completion of the Bar examination!

Welcome to the State Bar of Nevada. Your admission to the bar opens up a new realm of experiences – starting with Transitioning into Practice (TIP) – a mentor program for Nevada attorneys.

If you are a newly admitted lawyer and have practiced five years or less, your first step is to enroll in the TIP program. Your enrollment helps us to select an attorney appointed by the Supreme Court of Nevada to serve as your mentor during the six-month program. You may also select a mentor from this list and we will make every reasonable effort to place you with that attorney. Together, you will complete the mandatory and elective elements contained in the TIP Mentoring Plan.

Are you ready to get started? Complete the enrollment form below. Prior to each TIP cycle start date (mid-February for spring cycles and mid-August for fall cycles) we will notify you of your mentor match and steps for successfully completing the program requirements.
