Mentoring is a brain to pick, an ear to listen, and a push in the right direction – John C Crosby
Are you looking for some direction or guidance to take the next step in your career? Are you wanting to share your lessons learnt and give back to the profession? There are great career and social benefits in participating in the mentoring programme – it is a two-way street and you get out of it what you put in.
2017 Mentoring Programme
The Law Society offers a rigorous mentoring programme for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander law students and practitioners in April each year.
Mentors and mentees attend separate workshops to establish an understanding of the responsibilities, benefits and parameters of the mentoring relationship. Matches are carefully selected and the mentoring relationship is monitored by the programme facilitator.
In 2017 the Law Society are offering the mentoring programme to
- Junior practitioner (less than 5 years experience)
- Practitioner (more then 5 years experience)
