The Young Solicitors’ Group (“YSG”) organised the 2nd “CONNECTED” event on 15 July. More than 80 mentors and young members spent a relaxing and fun afternoon at an award winning local brewery.
The highlight of the event was the mentors’ sharing session during which Mr. Nick Chan, Mr. Alan Lau, Mr. Hugo Ngaw and Mr. Victor Yip shared their thoughts on the challenges that the legal profession is facing, what skills set young solicitors should develop in view of the challenges, and interesting ways to manage work-life balance. Participants then enjoyed a brewery tour learning about the brewery’s philosophy while tasting some refreshing locally brewed beer.
By way of background, “CONNECTED” is a mentorship and buddy programme first launched in early 2011 to provide a platform for newly admitted members to meet with more senior members of the profession in developing a professional supporting network. YSG holds a number of CONNECTED events throughout the year to encourage participants to regularly communicate with their mentors.
We will hold our next CONNECTED 2017 event in September!
