This fabulous event is for both law students and members of the WSBA International Practice Section. Join us for some great hors d’oeuvres and beverages, an opportunity to meet with WA law students interested in international law and lawyers of the WSBA International Practice Section, and a chance to hear from Ms. Karen Summerville of Legal Career Management discuss how to find success and satisfaction in the law – whether international or not – upon graduation from law school.
Ms. Karen Summerville’s international legal background includes the study of law in Germany and acting as a referral attorney for the German Consulate when still in practice. She was a partner in the law firm Betts, Patterson & Mines, where her focus was on commercial litigation and where she was active in associate hires and training. She was also an associate with Williams, Kastner and Gibbs, where she was also a member of the hiring committee.
