A breadth of experience, skillsets and mindsets are critical to building a better in-house legal community so we don't want to limit ourselves to a narrow definition of what an "in-house legal professional" is. Yes, we use that term - as for us, and for MOSAIC, it makes sense. It reflects the diversity of roles, skills and opportunities that we are starting to see more of in-house.
Not everyone is looking for the same help or guidance. Not everyone wants to be the next General Counsel. Each of us brings something different and something unique in terms of our experience and our approach. This is what makes MOSAIC work.
This is why you should be part of the mentoring movement and join MOSAIC.
For a small annual fee (free if you are a mentor) you will have access to some of best, brightest and most dynamic minds in the legal profession. There will be someone who can help you, who will maybe challenge you but will always do this respecting the confidentiality of your conversations. It isn't a one way street where only the mentee benefits from the wisdom of the mentor. Ask any of our mentors and they will tell you that they get as much out of being a mentor as their mentee. This is certainly true of our own experience.
To join MOSAIC, all we ask is that you work in-house and not in a law firm. For us, in-house means the legal departments of private and publicly held companies as well as government and regulatory agencies. You can be a qualified solicitor, barrister or attorney, a patent or trade mark attorney, work in legal operations, compliance, the company secretariat or be a former lawyer who now runs your own business. Trainees or apprentices doing their training contracts in-house are also eligible to join.
** If you are not based in the UK or USA, you can still apply for membership. Please select the USA and pay in $. We will be adding other currencies as we formally launch in those countries
