Mentor Express

Welcome to Mentor Express.

The purpose of Mentor Express is to improve the professionalism and success of Alberta lawyers. It engages experienced counsel to guide those with less experience to realize their career goals and achieve greater personal and professional balance in their lives.

Specifically, a successful mentoring relationship will help lawyers to:

  • Develop practical skills.
  • Discuss career management issues.
  • Contribute to their sense of integrity.
  • Increase their knowledge of legal customs.
  • Obtain guidance and counsel on professional life as a lawyer.
  • Encourage the use of best practices and highest ideals in the practice of law.
  • Improve leadership bench strength within their law firms, corporate legal departments, institutions (such as universities), Not-For-Profit organizations and the profession.

Mentees drive the conversations. They identify, and make known to their mentor, the professional skills, knowledge, attributes or capabilities they want to address to improve their success and effectiveness as a lawyer.

Mentors ask questions. They listen. They may review material to better appreciate the menteeā€™s strengths and weaknesses. They use their own experiences to identify and help the mentee overcome challenges and guide them in their decision-making.

For questions, comments or concerns, please feel free to contact our Customer Service team by email or at 1.800.661.9003.
