Mentor Program

Become the lawyer you want to be

The Alberta Branch Mentor Program pairs law students from UAlberta and UCalgary, and internationally trained lawyers completing the NCA process with practicing lawyers for guidance and practical advice to enhance the law school experience. The mentor/mentee relationship also sets students on a path for successful integration into the legal profession and community. But the benefits aren’t just for students! Mentors gain leadership and interpersonal skills while giving back to the practice of law.

We consider our program a success when participants develop meaningful relationships and engage in candid conversation about life and law. We respecfully ask that you only register for this program if you are committed to following through with your match.
