Speed Mentoring


Speed Mentoring for TLA members

Speed mentoring is a series of short, focused conversations about profession related questions. As a mentee you will meet with several mentors in 10‐minute time slots in which you will have an opportunity to tap into the experience and knowledge of diverse Toronto lawyers to discuss career development and professional issues that are common across the profession.

The evening will begin promptly at 5:30 p.m. with ten-minute mentoring sessions. During those sessions, you will meet with a number of experienced members of the bar in a variety of practice areas. The focus will be on profession-related issues that apply across practice areas, not on substantive questions or career development in a particular area. There will be time for chatting at the end of the mentoring sessions.

Bring your questions on any of the following professional issues, or others, but no substantive law questions please!

  • Career Growth Strategy
  • Ethical/Moral Issues
  • How to get Involved in Bar Organizations
  • Marketing
  • How to handle difficult clients or opposing counsel
  • How to build a book of business
  • Time management
  • Work/Life Balance
