Celebrating LILA's Inaugural Mentoring Programme
The London Irish Lawyers Association is pleased to announce a new mentoring programme. The programme provides a unique opportunity for experienced Irish solicitors and barristers working in London to provide careers advice to more junior LILA members.
Mentors and mentees joined members of the LILA Executive Committee at the launch event on 12th February, hosted by Brown Rudnick LLP.
Grainne Mellon, Chair of LILA, said: “We have been overwhelmed at the interest in the programme, not just from mentees, but also from mentors. We are fortunate to have some of the most experienced and senior legal professionals from Ireland participating.”
Judith Houston, LILA Committee Member and coordinator for the programme, said: “Providing junior LILA members, some of whom have only recently moved to London, with support in navigating the legal market and making them feel welcome here, is incredibly important to LILA. We have fifteen mentorship pairs on our inaugural programme – we hope this figure will grow over the coming years.”
Applications for next year's programme will open in the autumn of 2019.
