Become a Mentee

If you are considering taking a family career break, or are currently planning on returning to work, the Bar Mentoring Service would encourage you apply to be mentored.

Applicants will be contacted soon after receipt of the application form to arrange a one-to-one telephone meeting with a representative from the Bar Mentoring Service. The intention is that any information shared in the course of the meeting will inform the matching process. 

Thereafter the mentee will be informed of the proposed mentor, and if the mentee consents, the representative will initiate contact between the mentor and mentee.

In the event that the mentor's identity is disclosed to the mentee, and the mentee does not wish to pursue a mentoring relationship, the application will be referred back to the matching process, and another mentor will be sourced. 

Please be assured that all information shared on the application forms are strictly confidential, and will not be disclosed to prospective mentors without the mentee's written or oral consent to a Bar Mentoring Service representative. 

Please read through the  Guidance Document before submitting your application form. 

Applications forms are available here, and should be submitted to Please also complete the Equality and Diversity Monitoring Form.  

Alternatively, if you would prefer to send the form via post, please mark it for the attention of:
