Frequently Asked Questions
How long does it take to get matched?
Matches will be made twice a year
We will endeavour to ensure that everyone that has applied is matched - however, all matches will depend on the number of mentors that have registered each year.
Depending on the unique needs of the mentee or mentor, it may take additional time to find a suitable mentee/mentor.
How much time do I have to commit to the program?
We encourage mentors and mentees to discuss and determine the type of mentorship relationship they wish to have.
Depending on the needs of the mentee, some mentees may simply want a few questions answered via email while others may wish to speak to their mentor over coffee once a month.
We generally recommend that mentors be willing to commit to a 6-month mentorship relationship but a mentor is free to specify his or her time constraints and the best way to access them (ie. phone, e-mail, Zoom).
If at any point the mentor is unable to maintain their time commitment, we encourage the mentor or mentee to contact us so that we may find a more suitable match.
Can Junior Lawyers act as a mentor?
Yes! Junior lawyers may apply to be both a mentor and a mentee.
Junior lawyers wishing to mentor will be paired with a student
Junior lawyers seeking a mentee will be paired with a lawyer 5 years plus.
We encourage Junior lawyers to sign up to be both a mentor and mentee
