The Herbert Smith Freehills Women’s Mentoring Program is an annual mentoring program with the purpose of connecting aspiring female law students with successful female legal professionals.

The program is intended to allow female law students to develop close relationships with experienced and accomplished professionals such as yourself so that students can gain valuable insight into what it is like being a female lawyer in our current legal environment and gain a lifelong mentor/friend to whom they can turn to on not only professional issues and concerns but also more personal problems in relation to working in the legal field as a woman.

We are currently looking for female-identifying UNSW Law students in their 2nd, 3rd, 4th or 5th year of an undergraduate law degree (with preference given to students more progressed in their degree), or 2nd or 3rd year of a Juris Doctor or postgraduate law degree. All our mentors are highly successful and experienced professionals who are giving up time in their busy schedules in order to help students.

As this is a very rare and amazing opportunity, please do not apply if you are not willing to show them the utmost respect and represent yourself and the law society appropriately. It is critical that you actively ensure that you can invest your time into this program.

You must be able to attend the Launch Night on Tuesday 4th April from 6pm-8pm where you will be first introduced to your professional mentor. You will also be required to attend the closing event in September and a Thank You letter writing event (TBC). Please do not apply if you cannot attend.
