Networking Opportunity: Aboriginal Lawyers Mentorship Program
The second cycle of the Aboriginal Lawyers Mentorship Program
begins soon. Interested BC lawyers are encouraged to attend a Meet and Greet reception on September 12.
The event provides an opportunity for Aboriginal lawyers of up to three years of call to meet and be paired with experienced lawyers to establish a mentor-mentee relationship. The Program is the first of its kind in North America and is geared toward enhancing the retention and advancement of Aboriginal lawyers, who are currently underrepresented in the legal profession in British Columbia. Since its inception in 2013, the Program has matched 20 pairs.
The Meet and Greet event will take place on Friday, September 12, 2014 at the offices of Mandell Pinder LLP, Suite 422-1080 Mainland St, Vancouver, BC. The reception will begin at 5:00 pm. For more information, or to confirm attendance at the reception, contact Andrea Hilland, Law Society staff lawyer, at firstname.lastname@example.org
