Mentoring is key at Torys. All of our students and associates are provided with mentors and we strive to ensure that our lawyers have the resources, information and inspiration that they need to enjoy successful mentoring relationships and careers.
Your mentors will offer you professional guidance and assistance throughout your summer and articles, and help you integrate into the firm. Mentors are great resources and can be very valuable in helping you transition from a law student to a student-at-law. Summer students are assigned one mentor, typically a junior associate who remembers what it was like to be in your shoes. Articling students are assigned a mid-level associate who will act as your Law Society of Upper Canada principal.
We choose mentors who we believe recognize that frequent informal contact is the most important component of the relationship, and we also actively encourage the development of informal mentoring relationships through social and other events.
To highlight the importance of mentoring, we dedicate the month of May, annually, to mentoring. Mentoring Month activities have included interactive workshops for all lawyers and students on strengthening the mentor relationship, external speakers from the business and legal communities who share personal mentoring experiences and best practices, a firm-wide "Take Your Mentee for Lunch/Coffee Day"; and a Mentor Awards Ceremony.
"The Mentoring Program at Torys was one of the highlights of my summer experience. Through the formal Mentoring Program and internal social events, I was able to build formal and informal relationships with a number of lawyers in the firm. These individuals provided me with a tremendous amount of guidance and support, and always treated me with respect and as an important member of the team."
