The MAA is delighted to announce the launch of the 2023-2024 MAA Mentor – Mentee Programme.
The MAA Mentor – Mentee Programme offers law students and young professionals the opportunity to receive guidance and support from an experienced legal professional/academic as they begin to develop their careers.
The 2023-2024 Mentor – Mentee Programme is scheduled to take place from early October 2023 to 30 April 2024.
All programme participants must be members of the MAA. If you are not yet a member of the MAA, please sign up here: https://maa.net/membership/ first. All MAA members are encouraged to apply. As explained on the MAA website, Premium MAA members will receive priority with their applications. Applicants who are not members of the MAA will not be considered. Please ensure that the name and email address you use in your application is consistent with those associated with your MAA membership so that your eligibility for the Programme can be verified.
Mentors will ideally have at least 5 years of professional and/or post-graduate academic experience in international arbitration, commercial and/or trade law. Mentors will have excellent communication skills, the time to commit themselves to at least three one-on-one (virtual or in-person) meetings with their mentee and a desire to contribute to the growth and development of future young legal professionals.
Interested mentors should contact the MAA at [email protected] by early September 2023.
Mentees should be law students, recent graduates of a degree in law or young professionals with less than 5 years of post-qualified experience. Mentees should have an interest in seeking guidance and support in their professional development, including networking, writing opportunities and shaping career goals. Mentees who have taken part in a previous cycle of the programme are not eligible to participate in another cycle.
