YSG: Connected 2018 Kick-Off Event

On 23 March, around 150 members joined us at the kick-off event of CONNECTED 2018 mentorship programme organised by the Young Solicitors’ Group (’YSG’). Participants had a casual and relaxing evening while meeting and socialising with their fellow groupmates, as well as enjoying some snacks and drinks. We thank all participants, especially all our mentors for your time and support without which we could not continue with such an amazing programme!

By way of background, “CONNECTED” is a mentorship and buddy programme organised by the YSG that provides mentees (trainee solicitors) with the opportunity to be mentored by senior members (practitioners with PQE 8 years or above), to learn from their assigned buddies (young practitioners with less than 8 years PQE), and to network with fellow mentees. Since its launch in 2011, “CONNECTED” has become one of the most popular events of YSG.

Through various activities organised throughout the year, the CONNECTED programme provides a platform for participants to engage with each other, have fun, learn, all the while building long-term friendships with each other. Please stay tuned for the next CONNECTED official event which will be held in the summer.
