Work/Life Balance in Biglaw: Alumni Perspectives

  • Boalt Hall Room 170 (map)

One narrative about Biglaw is that you won’t have time for anything else in your life. It doesn’t have to be that way! Join us in conversation with Berkeley Law alumni who have thrived in corporate law practice while maintaining fulfilling lives outside the law.


Panelists will share their own experiences and take questions from students about how to protect time for self and family while achieving excellence at law firms.

Panelists will be: Judith Zahid ‘01, Zelle, LLP; Jimena Acuña Smith ‘10, Ropes and Gray; Joshua González ‘15, Covington

Location: Room 170

Lunch will be provided
