How long will the commitment be?
We ask our mentors to make commitments of at least 10 months in order to ensure the mentee can fully benefit from the program. If you must leave the program early, we request at least one month's notice in order to search for a replacement mentor with a similar background.
What other commitments are there?
As well as meeting with your mentee on a regular basis (at least one hour per month), you will need to complete a one-hour online training module and attend three events/webinars over the 10-month program. You will also need to agree to our Code of Practice and complete online program evaluations as requested.
Who can see my application form?
The information provided in your application will be kept confidential and only used by the program administrators to identify an appropriate mentee. Some information you provide may not be used when identifying an appropriate mentee. Your mentee will be able to view the information you provide in your application after you have been matched.
How will I know if I have been successful and who I have been matched with?
When applications close, we review all mentoring applications to identify appropriate matches. We aim to inform you of your mentee three weeks prior to the program commencing.
Who runs the Law Society Mentoring Program?
The Law Society has partnered with Art of Mentoring to deliver best practice mentoring techniques and support all mentees and mentors involved in our programs. Each mentoring program has its own dedicated online platform where you will be able to apply for the program and find all the necessary resources in one place. This platform is accessible via desktop, phone or tablet anywhere, anytime.
