Color of Law Welcomes Namita Tripathi Shaw
Posted March 16, 2012
The School of Law hosted Namita Tripathi Shaw as part of its Color of Law Roundtable Discussion series on March 14 in the Blake Law Center. During her visit, Shaw, a partner at Day Pitney LLP, spoke with the campus community on her path to becoming a legal professional.
“What got me into Day Pitney, frankly, was networking and I just really want to stress that to everybody and its great that you’re all here because this is the first step; making introductions with attorneys in the area,” advised Shaw. “The more you network, the better. Assume nothing is going to come of it, but it might.” She went on to say that "when you are looking at where you want to work, the things that I found important were working for a place that values pro bono work, values diversity, and allows you to have a work-life balance. Those are the softer parts about it. Obviously you want to work somewhere you have good, quality people to learn from as well.”
