In 2013, we launched our career mentoring scheme for students, trainees and solicitors as part of our professional support for solicitors. Now in its fourth year, the scheme has grown from strength to strength, and currently has over 60 active mentors.

While a mentoring relationship is first and foremost to benefit the mentee, as a mentor you have just as much to gain in experience, confidence, and knowledge.

We have partnered with Quiver Management, a European Quality Awarded coaching and mentoring organisation, to deliver a one day mentor training session that all our mentors must complete before being 'matched' with a mentee. 

During this training you will learn:

  • The mind-set and approach of a mentor
  • Constructive listening techniques and effective questioning techniques
  • A framework for effective mentoring conversations
  • How to share your experience and give feedback
  • How to prepare for mentoring conversations
  • How to end the mentoring relationship
  • Other support available for mentees

To join this training session please contact mentoring@lawscot.org.uk or complete the form on our mentoring pages.

Our career mentoring scheme

We run a successful career mentoring scheme, which supports those hoping to advance their legal careers. Find our about becoming a mentor or a mentee.

What does it take to be a career mentor?

Our mentors come from a variety of backgrounds and practice areas and they all want to use their personal experience to support someone else in their profession.

Find out more about being a mentee

People look for a mentor for a variety of reasons and it's not just those starting their career. It can be about career development, or about gaining confidence more generally.
