Legal Geek Mentorship
** Update: the 2020 cohort is now live. Please scroll down to be involved in the future **
The Legal Geek Mentorship program is organised with Ivy Wong, HighQ. Our first two cohorts focussed on Women in LawTech and for the latest cohort we hope to broaden the scope to address the under-representation within management and leadership structures in the legal profession, with particular but not exclusive focus on:
People from black and ethnic minority backgrounds
People with disabilities
Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT)
Those from disadvantaged socioeconomic backgrounds
I have not heard anything about my application?
If you have applied you will be on the list and will be emailed when we do the matches. There might be a delay hearing from us because we only review matches in batches close to the launch of the next cohort.
When will the next chort start?
Applications for cohort 3 have closed and the programme started in January 2020. This programme runs for 6 months. To apply to be part of cohort 4 please complete the form below.
How are mentors and mentees matched?
Mentors and mentees are matched based on their geographic location, professional goals and interests. Mentors and mentees are asked to write a short paragraph of what they want to get out of the programme to help with the matching process.
How often are mentors and mentees expected to meet?
Mentors and mentees are expected to meet at least once a month from Jan – June 2020. Meetings can be done face to face or via Skype/Zoom – we’ve had a number of successful cross-border pairings so we do encourage this if meeting in person isn’t viable
Organised with the support of Ivy Wong
