Have You Checked Out Your Profession’s Mentorship Programs?

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAYou don’t have to be part of a big law firm to find a mentor. Although the WLMP focuses on mentorship and leadership program at the university level and uses a specific mentorship method, we spend a lot of time assessing the various legal mentorship programs.

We found there are a lot of mentorship programs that lawyers can access. Pretty much every professional law association has a mentorship program.

Recently the Federation of Asian Canadian Lawyers (FACL) is boosting its mentorship opportunities. On Friday, February 26th, FACL will be holding its mentor-a-thon, to be hosted at the Toronto offices of Osler Hoskin & Harcourt LLP.
