The NSW Young Lawyers Mentoring Program connects lawyers seeking guidance and support with a more experienced practitioner who is willing to volunteer their time and energy to the professional development of another lawyer.
To ensure Mentors and Mentees forge mutually beneficial relationships, our program offers:
Compatibility be linked with someone with shared interests, experience or practice area
Confidentiality high value placed on trust, honesty and openness
Impartiality talk to a lawyer outside your immediate work environment
Empathy learn from someone who understands what you're going through
Flexibility choose how and when to interact and what you will discuss
Support access to resources and information workshops
