Mentoring can be a rewarding experience both personally and professionally. Successful mentors often improve their leadership skills, learn new perspectives and ways of thinking and gain a sense of personal satisfaction
To support the profession’s quest to provide the highest quality of legal services to the public, LEAD facilitates a mentorship programme between attorneys at different law firms. The objective of the mentoring programme is to elevate the competence, professionalism and success of attorneys through positive mentoring relationships.
Through training, LEAD provides mentors with guidance on how to become successful mentors and build relationships of mutual trust and respect. The number of mentors taking part will determine the number of matched mentoring pairs the programme is able to support.
