Is it your first time at our congress? Have you just joined AIJA? Or maybe you have just started your legal career and need some professional guidance? Our congress mentorship programme is for you. Request to be mentored by a more senior colleague and we can pair you with a senior AIJA member. If you are a long-standing member of AIJA, you can also request to mentor a younger colleague at the congress.

How does this work?

We encourage the following interactions during the mentorship programme:

  • Mentors and mentees get in touch by email or phone before the congress to get to know each other and discuss about their expectations from the congress
  • Mentors share their career experience and how AIJA works with mentees during the congress. They can have lunch together, have coffee, share a taxi or even go for a walk in Brussels
  • Mentors introduce mentees to other AIJA members to help the mentee expand her/his professional network during the congress

How can I be part?

Send an email by 17 August to whereby you indicate your area of practice and the dates you will be attending the congress. Ahead of the congress, we will inform both mentors and mentees on the pairing made to match their interests.
