Recruiting Mentees for 2022–2023 Mentor Express
There is still time to register as a mentee for the 2022–2023 Mentor Express program.
Mentor Express is a non-traditional mentorship program available to Alberta lawyers free of charge. Mentees browse an online listing of mentors and choose one-hour sessions with those they are interested in meeting. This self-match system allows mentees to seek guidance and insight relevant to their own career development with a variety of mentors in different work settings.
As a new lawyer, mentoring relationships can encourage and empower your professional development, help you identify and achieve career goals, and increase your confidence. By engaging in a mentoring relationship, you can expand your professional network and identify gaps in your knowledge or skills to address them early in your career.
Any Alberta lawyer interested in mentorship is eligible to participate as a mentee. The program is particularly beneficial for:
- articling students,
- new lawyers recently called to the bar,
- young lawyers in their first years of practice, or
- any lawyer seeking advice about transitioning to a new practice area or practice setting.
A reminder that all new lawyers called to the bar in 2022 have been automatically enrolled as mentees in the 2022–2023 Mentor Express program. For more information on automatic enrolment in Mentor Express, visit our website.
Lawyers who have practised at least five years, including active, inactive and retired lawyers, are eligible to serve as mentors in Mentor Express.
