Event description

Description

The GradLink Career Mentoring Programme for Law will be launched on Wednesday 12 October at 6.30pm in the Long Room Hub, TCD. This is a mentoring programme especially for Junior Sophister students, or SS students who spent their JS year abroad. Graduates of the School have kindly agreed to act as mentors for current students, meeting and offering advice to students on a number of occasions during the year on issues relating to their career and professional development. The School is privileged to have an excellent group of mentors who have carved out successful careers both in the legal profession (barristers, solicitors, in-house lawyers, government lawyers) and beyond (in business, media, government and so on). We are very grateful to our graduates for giving up their time to offer to mentor.
The launch event for GradLink will give you an opportunity to learn about the mentors who will share their experiences and career pathways with students. This will be followed by a wine reception where you can meet and mingle with the mentors. This promises to be a very enjoyable evening bringing together many members of the wider Law School community: staff and students, past and present.
Following the launch event, students can express interest in being paired with a mentor. While it will not always be possible to pair all students with their preferred mentors, the School, working with the students and the Careers Advisory Service, will do its best to accommodate students’ preferences and interests as far as possible. Once students have been assigned a mentor, it is envisaged that mentors and mentees would meet between 2 and 3 times during the academic year, to learn more about the mentors’ career and offer guidance to mentees as they approach graduation. For further information, please visit the Law School’s GradLink webpage – https://www.tcd.ie/Law/local/students/gradlinklaw.php
GradLink is an excellent opportunity to start thinking about your future and we are very grateful to our alumni for giving their time to participate in this programme. We encourage all Junior Sophister students to come along to the launch and to give a warm welcome to our graduates who are returning to Trinity for this event. For those interested in being mentored, we will explain the sign-up and matching process on the night and arrange meetings in the following weeks at which mentors will be assigned. In order to participate, please register your interest to attend.
