Registration Open for Mentor Express Mentees

August 17, 2023

Registration is open for mentees in the 2023–2024 Mentor Express program.  

Mentor Express is a non-traditional mentorship program. 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.  

The 2023–2024 Mentor Express program begins in October, but registration is open now. Register as a mentee on our website.  

Any Alberta lawyer is eligible to participate as a mentee, but this program is particularly beneficial for: 

  • articling students; 
  • new lawyers recently called to the bar; 
  • lawyers in their first years of practice; 
  • internationally trained lawyers; 
  • Canadian Centre for Professional Legal Education (CPLED) candidates; or 
  • any lawyer seeking advice about transitioning to a new practice area or practice setting. 

As a mentee, a mentoring relationship can encourage and empower your professional development, help you identify and achieve career goals, and increase your confidence. Watch this short video featuring Len Polsky, Manager of Legal Technology and Mentorship at the Law Society of Alberta, and Alberta Court of Appeal Justice, Bernette Ho, as they chat about the importance of mentorship for lawyers.
