Apply as a Mentor

CBABC mentorship matches lawyers with law students to share experience and insight into the practice of law. Law students can observe court appearances, discuss files and get a taste of life in the legal profession.

This application form allows you to choose one of BC’s three law schools to mentor one student. If you would like to mentor students from more than one law school, please submit another application. Each law school completes matches and your selected law school will notify you once your match is ready.



Occasionally there are more mentees than there are mentors. This can enable a mentor to be matched with more than one student. If you have the capacity to possibly be matched with more than one student, please indicate your maximum:


Workplace *

Please indicate you primary areas of practice.

Please indicate if you went through the National Committee on Accreditation (NCA) process, and if so, from which country your previous law degree was obtained.

Some students have indicated an interest in being paired up with mentors who self-identify as part of a group underrepresented in the legal profession. If you would like to be paired with one of these students and feel comfortable identifying yourself (for example, in terms of sexual diversity/orientation, race, ethnicity, disability, gender, etc.), or if you had a previous career before attending law school, please indicate below and provide any relevant details.



Consent to disclose to Law School *

Your information is collected under the authority of section 26(c) of the British Columbia Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act.

This information will be shared with the law school with which you have registered as a CBABC mentor. The Peter A. Allard School of Law, Thompson Rivers University, and University of Victoria [collectively, the “law schools”] will use this information to monitor and recognize volunteer engagement.

The law schools will treat your information as confidential. The law schools will not disclose your identity and contact information unless you authorize us to do so. The law schools do not sell, rent or trade lists.

If you have any questions about the privacy of your application, please contact the CBABC student representative at the law school with which you have registered as a CBABC mentor.
