The purpose of Mentor Connect is to improve the professionalism and success of Alberta lawyers. It engages experienced counsel to guide those with less experience to realize their career goals and achieve greater personal and professional balance in their lives.
Mentor Moments shares the stories and experiences of the mentors in our Mentor Connect Program.
