BFL Mentorship Program

The Black Future Lawyers mentoring program fosters supportive connections between undergraduate Black students and Black lawyers. Participating students benefit from the mentors’ knowledge, wisdom, support, and experience.

The program matches Black undergraduate students with Black lawyers in the Ontario legal community. We are recruiting very broadly — lawyer mentors do not need to be alumni of the University of Toronto Faculty of Law to participate.

Please note that we require BFL mentors to have at least received their JD and have one year of work experience, or currently be articling. We do ask BFL mentors to commit to connecting with their mentees, at a minimum of three times during the academic year (early fall to end of May).

If you are interested in in participating, please complete the mentoring form by Wednesday, September 21, 2022.
