FACL’s Mentorship Committee, in collaboration with the University of Toronto Faculty of Law’s Asia Law Society (ALS), is pleased to present an evening of virtual speed networking! Law students and licensing candidates (mentees) will have the opportunity to network with lawyers in a variety of practice areas. This event provides mentees with the unique opportunity to speak with a variety of legal professionals in a small group setting.

Law students and licensing candidates will be assigned to breakout rooms. Mentors will rotate to certain breakout rooms, allowing breakout room mentees to speak to their allocated mentor for a certain period of time. Once time is up, mentors will receive an invitation to join their next breakout room, and rotations will commence, allowing them to join a new set of mentees. Speed networking rotations will occur every fifteen minutes, giving students the opportunity to make not-so-distant connections and ‘speed network’ with at least 4 mentors who will drop into their breakout rooms.

Dial-in and Zoom conferencing details will be provided by email to those who register. Please be reminded that mentees and lawyer mentors are expected to maintain appropriate, professional, and inclusive conduct during this event. In addition, due to the nature of this event, we have implemented an attendance cap. If you are unable to attend this event following your registration, we ask that you inform us about your cancellation as soon as possible so we may accept waitlisted participants. We thank you in advance for your cooperation.
