Interested law students from across Canada may apply to the program by following the two-step process below. The deadline to apply is Friday, October 22 2021 at 11:59 p.m. PST.
1. Fill out an application.
2. Submit a copy of your CV.
Level staff will review all applications, and will work to connect selected students with experienced mentors based on their interests and shared experiences.
Groups are limited to up to four mentees per mentor in order to maximize the amount of contact with the mentor, and ensure each meeting adheres to the principle of quality over quantity.
Past mentors have included legal professionals with experience working in private practice, registered charities government and non-governmental organizations, drawing on experience in environmental, immigration, family, Aboriginal, criminal and constitutional law, women's rights advocacy, class action and privacy litigation.
Meetings occur four times throughout the course of the academic year for one hour each, and can be held over online video chat platforms, or in person at the discretion of the mentor. All participants are provided with a Level Program Toolkit to guide the course of these discussions, and ensure students get the most out of the time they invest in the program. The material in the toolkit facilitates candid discussions on a variety of topics such as management and leadership skills, cultural sensitivity, career do's and don'ts, CV reviews, volunteering, and finding balance.
