The MMP has grown exponentially each year and is well attended by many judges, established lawyers and law students from every school in Florida. Every student, lawyer and judge who attends the MMP will have an opportunity to find a mentor or mentee. We hand out "Need Mentor" and "Need Mentee" badges and help make introductions.

The MMP is a family friendly event. We have an entire section dedicated to children with rock climbing walls, ring toss, games, face painting, and much more. We also have a volleyball tournament and dedicated sports area. On the stage, we have a DJ spinning tunes and introducing lawyers and judges.

There is an extensive assortment of food, including Cuban paella and arroz con pollo, roasted pigs cooked at the picnic by Ray Abadin, President of the Florida Bar and former Cuban American Bar President, and his friends. We have barbeque ribs, Jamaican jerk chicken, Haitian curry goat, burgers, dogs, sausages, and lamb with pita. We guarantee you that you will not leave the picnic hungry.
