Speed Mentoring: Practical Advice on Succeeding as a Young Tax Lawyer 

Oct. 1, 2019
Toronto ON

OBA Taxation Law PROGRAM | 5:30 PM to 8:00 PM

Are you a junior tax lawyer or law school student interested in tax law? Are you wondering what life looks like in the first few years of practicing tax law, or could you use practical advice from senior practitioners on how to get to where you want to be tomorrow? If so, join us for this helpful event where you will gain valuable face-to-face time with both junior and senior tax practitioners to get the insight you need.

The evening will begin with a panel discussion between both senior and junior tax practitioners on topics such as:

  • What a junior tax practitioner’s day looks like in a tax litigation and a tax planning practice
  • The important steps you can take to get on the career path you want

Following the panel discussion, participate in the “speed mentoring” portion of the event. Come prepared with your most pressing questions on any of the above topics, including concerns about stress management or other practical issues to which you are looking for real answers!
