Associate Board Boot Camp Thrives with High Attendance and Valuable Insight


On February 12, 2016, the Chicago Committee’s Associate Board held its annual Boot Camp Program for junior associates and attendance was high. The boot camp consisted of three panels which addressed the topics of “What I Wish I Knew Then,” “Mentoring and Professional Development,” and “Navigating Your Firm.” The panelists were distinguished attorneys from large law firms in Chicago, including Steven Hunter (Quarles & Brady), Merili Seale (Bryan Cave), Erin Stach (Dentons), Heather Harrison (Faegre Baker Daniels), Ernesto Palomo (Locke Lord), Leslie Richards-Yellen (Hinshaw & Culbertson), Theodore Yi (Quarles & Brady), Joseph McCoy (Bryan Cave) and Reena Bajowala (Jenner & Block). The Boot Camp was followed by an exclusive networking happy hour.
