KICA resumes mentoring programme for new lawyers
Kim Sunghan

After being suspended for three years, the Korea In-house Counsel Association (KICA) and the Seoul Bar Association co-hosted an in-house counsel mentoring programme on 29 June at the Seoul Bar Association building. About 80 newly admitted lawyers attended the programme as mentees to garner an insight into in-house careers.

“Through this programme, mentees are able to gain the knowledge of mentors’ insights,” said Kim Sunghan, the KICA president. “I hope to hold this meaningful chance for young lawyers once more this year.”

The head of the KICA’s environmental, social and governance (ESG) division and former president, Lee Wan-keun, delivered a lecture on how to establish relationships in business, the importance of reports and communication.

The programme consisted of different sections, offering opportunities for mentees to be acquainted with lawyers specialising in various industries and to observe the work of successful mentors up close.
