Practice Advisors and Mentorship Programs
Practice advisors help lawyers with practice and ethical advice. They do not provide substantive legal advice to lawyers.
It is a free and confidential service to help lawyers. Practice advisors cannot provide advice to the public.
The Law Society of Yukon does not have in-house Practice Advisors at this time. Members wishing to speak to a practice advisor may contact a practice advisor with the Law Society of British Columbia or the Law Society of Alberta.
Information with respect to Practice Advisors with the Law Society of Alberta, including contact information, is available at the following link:

Mentor Connect is a more traditional mentoring program that offers the mentee an opportunity to meet with a mentor over an extended period of time. How often and how long you meet is up to you.
Mentor Express on the other hand is like online shopping for mentors. Instead of being matched with just one mentor, it offers mentees a chance to have one-time, one-hour meetings with a series of different mentors.
In Mentor Express, mentees browse an online listing of mentors and choose sessions with those they are interested in meeting. The self-match system allows mentees to seek guidance and insight relevant to their own career development from mentors they are most interested in speaking with.
The purpose of both mentorship programs through the Law Society of Alberta is to improve the professionalism and success of lawyers. They engage experienced counsel to guide those with less experience to realize their career goals and achieve greater personal and professional balance in their lives.
