2023 TAS Mentoring Portal - Mentee Registration

The Advocates' Society is proud to announce a new online mentoring program exclusively for TAS members. The program is hosted on Mentoring Rocket and features a gallery of TAS mentors who are available for micro-mentoring sessions.

Registration for eligible TAS Members* is now open!

We know isolation has become a significant issue for junior counsel since 2020, so a key goal of this new mentoring program is to create a simple way for our Junior Members to feel more connected to their professional community and obtain some career advice from more experienced members of the bar. This program model is convenient, efficient and effective:

  • No long-term commitments.
  • No extensive questionnaires or matching.
  • No heavy agendas, minute taking or long-term planning.
Just simple connection and conversation for junior lawyers to get some tips and connect with someone new. And if there is a fit? Great! Mentors and mentees can choose to meet again. But that is up to you.

We have mentors ready on the portal and getting set up as a mentee is as easy as 1, 2, 3!

  1. Register! Once you register to be a mentee here, TAS staff will set you up in the portal and send you log on instructions by email.

  2. Set up your account! Once you are logged in to your personal account on Mentorship Rocket, you will have access to the gallery of mentors.

  3. Find a Mentor & Connect! Choosing a mentor is in the mentee's control. Mentees review profiles in the mentor gallery and contact mentors with available sessions for a one-hour micro-mentoring session. The dates on Mentor profiles are indicators of availability but you and your mentor can select a different date and time that is convenient to both of you. Please ensure you 'book' the session in the portal platform, so our mentors can manage their schedules. 

The program allows up to 12 mentoring sessions over the year, offering mentees the opportunity to connect with a variety of experienced counsel. Mentoring sessions are intended to be an informal way for mentees to seek advice on topics important to them. Although sessions cannot be booked for more than one hour, mentees are encouraged to book sessions even if they expect they will need less than an hour for a mentoring session.

Interested in being a mentor? TAS members can opt in to be a mentor on their online member profile and TAS staff will get you set up on the platform. 

Have questions? We are happy to help! Please contact membership@advocates.ca and our team will assist you.

*This program is currently available to Junior and Regular TAS members in good standing. Preference will be given to Junior Members who are less than 5 years called to the bar. Student members will be place on a waiting list, if spaces open up. 
**At this time, the program platform is only available in English but we are working with Mentorship Rocket to launch a bilingual (English and French) site later in 2023.
