2021 Women in Law Japan Mentoring Program


The Women in Law Japan (WILJ) Mentoring Program was created in 2017 and is now entering its fourth year in 2021.

This program provides mentees with an informal platform to gain insights from experienced WILJ legal professionals on questions in relation to career progression, dealing with difficult or challenging situations in the work place and other topics of importance.

The WILJ events, particularly the mentoring events which are regularly conducted by Women in Law Japan would compliment this program by giving the mentors and mentees an opportunity in which to meet up, where the subject matter of such events are appropriate for both mentors and mentees. These concurrent and regular mentoring events may also provide the mentees the basic skills required for career development or allow the mentors and mentees to have specific topics and issues which they could discuss with each other.


If you wish to participate in the 2021 Women in Law Japan Mentoring Program, please fill-out this form and click submit by January 31, 2021. Otherwise, please contact mentoring@womeninlawjapan.org to express your interest by the deadline.

We will respond to you shortly after receiving your application regarding your match up for the 2021 Women in Law Japan Mentoring Program.

WILJ Mentoring Programでは、4年目となる2021年に新しいマッチアップを行うこととなりました。

WILJのイベントやMentoring Program独自のイベントを通してMentorとMenteeが交流し、キャリアの相談などインフォーマルにお互いを支えあう機会を作ることを目指しています。
