The Law Society of Alberta has launched a new series of group mentoring events called Table Talks. These events were introduced to a small audience last year as a way to connect new lawyers with more experienced professionals, and we are pleased to announce that Table Talks is now a formal offering in our mentorship programs.
The purpose of Table Talks is to bring together mentors and mentees for in-person group mentoring sessions to network and discuss important topics that affect lawyers. Each event features a specific discussion theme with mentors leading informal conversations among small groups of mentees. Some of the upcoming discussion themes in 2023 include real estate law, Indigenous law and a variety of practice management topics, to name a few.
Mentees involved in our Mentor Connect and Mentor Express programs will receive advance notice of each event, as space is limited. Articling students, Canadian Centre for Professional Legal Education (CPLED) candidates, new lawyers or lawyers who are specifically interested in the topics of discussion are also welcome to attend on a first come, first served basis. Lunch is provided at each session and there is no cost to attend.
Check our events page regularly to see new Table Talk sessions as they are scheduled throughout the year.
If you are interested in participating in a future Table Talk event as either a mentor or a mentee, contact our Mentorship team.
