Attention all law students! Are you curious about the different paths you might be able to take in legal practice? There’s no better way to learn than by speaking with lawyers immersed in their respective practice areas. Back by popular demand, FACL BC is pleased to present the fifth annual instalment of the Mentorship Roundtable and Mixer. Join us via Zoom on Wednesday, February 23, 2022 for an interactive evening of conversation with experienced lawyers in multiple practice areas.

This event is often well-attended by law students, junior lawyers, and anyone else looking to explore their options. All are welcome!

How It Works: On registration, you will be asked to select 3 practice areas of interest.
