UC women lawyers' mentor program
Women law students at the University of Canberra have established the Women Lawyers Mentoring Program to help connect women law students with women lawyers.
This program will pair women law students from the University of Canberra with professional women in the legal sector as a means to empower and develop women studying law. Mentors are free to individually structure their sessions.
We encourage our members who are interested in being a mentor to register.
Applications for the current mentor program session close at on Sunday, 18 August 2019. Click here to complete a short form to register to become a mentor.
The program aims to help female law students to gain insights into the various challenges that they may come across in the industry, as well as some networking and or insights into particular areas of law.
Mentors are required to meet with mentee at least two times throughout the semester (from mid August to mid November) with a view to sharing just some of your life as a female in the law. The mentees initiate contact to organise mutually suitable meeting.
The student team running the UC Women Lawyers Mentor Program select the mentees and conduct the matching process.
