Locke Lord is pleased to participate in the National Bar Association’s inaugural Associate Advancement Academy for Excellence, an initiative designed to help Black associates in large law firms advance their careers, and to have as a Fellow, Dallas Associate Cameasha Turner. Turner and other Fellows will meet throughout the year, taking part in courses on the anatomy of a Big Law firm, navigating a law firm, working with firm professionals, the art of business development, learning a client’s business and building a personal brand both internally and externally. The Academy will also offer monthly educational and networking sessions, check-ins with mentors and a range of National Bar Association events.
“I am so honored to have been selected as a Fellow. I would have never imagined being afforded an opportunity of this caliber so early in my career, and I know it will be rewarding and fulfilling. Programs like this remind law students and attorneys who look like me that we belong and are valued in this profession,” said Turner.
