Victoria Ryan, Associate Director of Career Services, provided this recap of the panel discussion:
On January 29, a great group of students turned out on a very cold night in Chicago with sub-zero temperatures to hear a panel of six distinguished attorneys discuss their roles as in-house corporate counsel:
David Susler – Associate General Counsel, National Material L.P.
Matthew Hamielic ’17 – Associate Attorney, Innovation Law Department, Allstate
Angela Frye ’97 – General Counsel, Great Lakes Market, Verizon Wireless
It’s hard to say where you’re most likely to meet Jun Qiu at Chicago-Kent. She has been quick to take advantage of every opportunity that matches her many skills and interests. In her time here, she’s helped create two new student organizations, served as a research assistant in the Law Lab and for Illinois Tech’s Institute of Design, and is now assisting law students as a TA for our Legal Writing Program.
She was recently recognized as one of National Jurist’s 20 “Law Students of the Year” for her contributions to her law school and community in the past year. Last year she attended the ABA TechShow 2017 for the first time and joined Twitter to expand her legal tech network. This week she’ll be speaking at the #LegalTech & Innovation Talks meetup hosted at Skadden during the ABA Techshow 2018.
Jun Qiu was already working as a CPA when she decided to pursue law school because she wants “to change the world, to promote justice and fairness.” Chicago-Kent drew her interest for its location and legal writing program.
