Become a Mentor or Mentee with LIANS

Do you have a minimum of nine years of experience and are interested in volunteering your time to provide support and guidance to another member? LIANS is currently seeking mentors for its Mentorship Program, specifically in the areas of family law, corporate/commercial, and criminal law.

The Mentorship Program offers the following advantages and opportunities:

  • matching based on the areas of interest and criteria identified by both mentor and mentee;
  • a mentorship plan created by you and your match, to identify your areas of focus and goals for the upcoming year;
  • an annual event where you can meet possible matches and learn more about the program.

Advantages of being a mentor:

  • renew and revitalize your own practice and strategies;
  • stay current with issues and developments in the next generation of professionals;
  • expand your own personal network.
