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.
The mentees and mentors are matched according to the skills to be transferred and the location of the parties. 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.
Mentoring is a win-win situation for the attorneys, profession and public. The mentees learn best practices which improves their confidence and professional judgment, thereby providing their clients with a better service. By helping others to practise law, mentors often find that mentoring cements their own knowledge on best-practice strategies. In addition, mentors get the satisfaction that comes from a sense of giving back to the profession.
The next step
While we will make every effort to match you with a mentee, the match depends on the number of mentees in your area plus their skills transfer needs. Therefore, we cannot guarantee an immediate match. We will, however, keep your details on our database and continue to look for a suitable match.
