Recruiting Mentors for Mentor Connect
The Law Society is recruiting new mentors for our Mentor Connect program. Lawyers who have practised at least five years, including inactive and retired lawyers, are eligible to participate as mentors in the program.
All types of lawyers are encouraged to register; however, we are specifically seeking solo practitioners and lawyers who practice Immigration law and/or Criminal Defence law to pair with mentees interested in those particular areas.
About Mentor Connect
Mentor Connect is a traditional mentorship program that matches mentors and mentees based on areas of law, geographical proximity, personal experience and similar interests. Pairs are matched for six months and meet regularly, in person or remotely, depending on preference.
Through the program, experienced mentors provide guidance and support to mentees to help them:
- realize career goals;
- achieve greater personal and professional balance;
- develop practical skills;
- build confidence; and,
- learn best practices in the practice of law.
The program is voluntary and open to all lawyers in the province at no additional cost.
