New Member Spotlight: Jeanine Alvarez
Where are you from?
The Bronx, NY
What is something interesting about you?
I enjoyed a very brief rap career while in law school, and (through my enabling and supportive friends) performed at a handful of clubs/bars/events. My contracts professor attended one of my performances!
What is your favorite thing about your job?
Having the opportunity to learn something new every day. As a junior litigation associate at a BigLaw firm, I am constantly given the opportunity to deep dive into new subjects—from FCPA [Foreign Corrupt Practices Act] anti-bribery provision enforcement to New York FOIL [Freedom of Information Law] procedures—and apply what I learn to better serve my clients.
What is your greatest career accomplishment?
To date, my greatest career accomplishment is clerking in the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit with Judge Greenaway, Jr. My experience in Judge Greenaway’s chambers has made me a better storyteller, a stronger advocate, and a more strategic thinker.
What are you looking to gain from networking?
I’m looking to make meaningful connections, serve as a resource to others in this community, and expand my horizons by learning about others’ experiences.
