Program Information for participants
In line with SoCLA’s commitment to lifelong learning and professional development, members at ANY stage of their career can apply to be mentored.
The Society of Construction Law Australia offers a mentoring program for all members. In keeping with the Society's objects and vision, the Society's Mentoring Program seeks to assist members at all stages of their career in their professional development.
The need to know:
- Participants must be a financial member of the Society (we can confirm if a corporate membership already exists with your organisation)
- We ask that mentors have at least 5 years PQE
- The program runs from late April/May to December each year
- We suggest pairs meet up in-person or virtually every 4 to 8 weeks
- We like to keep our program flexible and encourage pairs to find a routine that suits them, whether it’s meeting more or less frequently, in any combination of in-person or virtual.
- Our Mentoring Guidelines provides more detailed information.
For this program, a mentor is defined as a “teacher and guide” to a mentee. However, mentees within the SoCLA program have an equal responsibility to be active learners. Mentoring is considered to be a two-way street, with multiple potential outcomes for both parties.
