Mentoring Q&A

By Law Institute Journal

Mentoring 


Mentor Anna Forsyth Why be a mentor? The most important part about being a mentor is the way it allows me to promote friendship in the law. I am quite certain that without the benefit of a number of my own mentors, a career as a lawyer would have been far too lonely for me. How does your expertise/experience help? Being a mentor is often about being a good sounding board. Sometimes the expertise that I have developed will assist me in that task and at other times it will be the broader experience that I have gained as a lawyer that will prove useful. I have also enjoyed learning about my current mentee’s work in migration law – an area about which I know very little. Best advice given? If time allows, sleep on it. Many a seemingly unsolvable legal dilemma at 10pm has been resolved by 7am. Who was your mentor? Simon McGregor, barrister, was my mentor in 2009 and remains my mentor today. I respect and trust him enormously both as a colleague and friend. Anna Forsyth is a barrister.
