Mentor scheme and panel discussions

Plesner has a special mentor scheme for female third-year assistant attorneys and attorneys. The mentor is an external or internal partner from another practice area than the mentee. The aim is to provide the mentee with the necessary inspiration and support through sparring and advice on development, further training and career.

Plesner also arranges panel discussions for women lawyers on subjects that are relevant if a woman is contemplating a career as a manager or a partner.
