Mentor of the Year

Mentor of the Year Award

The New Tax Lawyer Committee (NTLC) recognizes the efforts of one truly outstanding mentor with the Mentor of the Year Award.


Any attorney who is a member in good standing of the OSB Taxation Section and is nominated by a person mentored by the attorney is eligible to receive the award. Because the award is given by the NTLC, the mentor-mentee relationship must be related to the practice of tax law, and both the nominee and the nominating person must be members of the OSB Taxation Section.

Participation in the Mentor Program is not required. Because mentoring is different for each individual, the award criteria aim to recognize the diversity of those relationships by allowing the selection committee to take all factors into account when selecting a recipient.


Nominations must be in writing and should describe the nominee’s qualification for the award. Use of the nomination form is encouraged, though not required. All nominations must include the name and contact information for both the nominee and the nominating person as well as an explanation of why the nominating person believes that the nominee deserves the award.  Submit your nomination by 11:59 p.m. on September 30, 2022.
