YSG CONNECTED 2019 Closing Event - Leather Crafting Workshop

The final official event of Young Solicitors’ Group’s (“YSG”) CONNECTED 2019 Mentorship and Buddy Programme took place on 11 January at the Law Society Function Room with over 90 mentors, buddies and mentees gathering for a fun-filled Saturday afternoon.

The event started with welcome remarks by Vice President Amirali Nasir and a mentor sharing session by Council Members Mrs. Cecilia Wong and Mr. Jonathan Ross, and Mentors Ms. Sauw Yim and Mr. Sebastian Ko on “New Year’s Resolution and Career Planning”. It was followed by a leather crafting workshop where all CONNECTED participants learnt some basic techniques in leather crafting and brought home their own personalised leather product. Participants also enjoyed the opportunity to network with their group members over light refreshments.

CONNECTED is a mentorship and buddy programme first launched in early 2011 with a view to provide a platform for trainee solicitors and newly admitted members to meet with more senior members of the profession in developing a professional supporting network. YSG organises a number of official CONNECTED events throughout the year to encourage participants to meet regularly with their group members. Participants are also encouraged to arrange their own gatherings.

YSG is now inviting members and trainee solicitors to apply for the CONNECTED 2020 Mentorship and Buddy Programme. If you wish to connect with your fellow members and trainee solicitors while enjoying exciting and fun activities, please contact the Member Services Department on ms_asst@hklawsoc.org.hk for details. We look forward to seeing you in our upcoming events!
