Managing a Mentoring Relationship

This booklet (Download PDF) provides practical advice and guidelines on how both mentors and mentees or protégées can build mentoring relationships that are productive and successful. It also explains the guidelines under which LAWPRO will waive surcharges on claims made against lawyers acting as mentors in a mentoring relationship.

Find a mentor or mentee: Many groups and associations around Ontario coordinate mentoring relationships between members. For new lawyers, finding a mentor that understands your specific goals and experiences is key to building useful and foundational relationships. For potential mentors, passing your knowledge and experience on to those who will most benefit from it is important. Our table of Ontario Mentoring Programs provides information on associations across Ontario, both large and small, the diverse groups they serve, and the various mentoring programs they offer.
