About this Event
FACL Ontario's Ottawa Committee, in collaboration with the Asian Law Students’ Society and the South Asian Law Student Association at the University of Ottawa, is pleased to present our first ever Ottawa-based virtual mentoring event! Law students will have the opportunity to network with Asian lawyers practicing in Ottawa and Asian lawyers who have graduated from the University of Ottawa and practicing outside of Ottawa. This is a unique opportunity for students to network with Asian legal professionals from diverse practice areas and levels of experience.
Law student mentees and lawyer mentors will be assigned to small groups in breakout rooms where they will have a chance to ask questions and network. Mentors will be provided with question prompts, but students are free to bring their own questions and topics of discussion as well. Mentees and mentors will be brought back into a main room at the end of the event for optional, informal networking.
We will have mentorship sessions in small groups from 5:00 pm to 6:00 pm, followed by informal networking from 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm.
Dial-in and Zoom conferencing details will be provided by email to those who register. When registering, please select “Law Student / Articling Student” if registering as a student and “Lawyer” if registering as a lawyer. If you are a lawyer who would also like to participate as a mentor, please contact us directly. Secure your spot today!
Please be reminded that student mentees and lawyer mentors are expected to maintain appropriate, professional, and inclusive conduct during this event. We thank you in advance for your cooperation.
