As part of the School of Law's Color of Law Roundtable Discussion Series, James G. Bynoe, corporate counsel in the Market Relations Group of Liberty Mutual Insurance Company's Enterprise Legal Services Department, spoke at the School of Law on January 29. Bynoe's lecture, "Career Paths: Corporate Counsel," detailed his personal story about how he became the successful individual that he is today.
As words of advice to anyone who is in the process of choosing a career path, Bynoe told the audience how he believes "that if you work hard enough you will be rewarded and opportunities will come your way." In the professional world, Bynoe pointed out to students that "whatever environment you end up working in, it is critically important to understand the culture of the organization and how you fit best in that organization."
The Color of Law series is designed to expose Western New England College law students to attorneys, professionals, and judges of color. The series provides students a chance to network with people of color from the legal community and learn about various career paths.
The next Color of Law speaker, Asker Saeed, will be on campus February 24 at 12:00 noon in the Blake Law Center. Saeed, assistant counsel at Pratt & Whitney, will discuss his personal experiences and and field questions from the audience.
