Do you want to give back to the legal profession through mentorship but can’t seem to find the time?
In traditional mentoring programs, you are introduced to a single mentee who you get to know over an extended time period. Since you might spend weeks or months getting to know each other, the time commitment can be considerable. For some lawyers, these long-term mentoring relationships aren't possible.
In Mentor Express, extended one-on-one mentoring is replaced with a series of monthly one-hour meetings with different mentors and mentees. Mentees meet a mentor only once and multiple mentors over the course of the program. And mentors will meet multiple mentees as well.
This provides mentors and mentees alike with exposure to a broader range of ideas and experiences while requiring mentors to commit less of their valuable time to the program. Also, rather than have a program administrator do the matching, the mentees in Mentor Express select their own mentors by browsing an online gallery and choosing the mentoring sessions that appeal most to them.
We will be launching Mentor Express in January 2019. Before we do that, we are busy building a pool of mentors in a variety of practice areas and practice settings across the province.
