Young Laywers Network

Spotlight on 2011-2013 Class of Fellows: Timnetra Burruss

My RPTE Fellowship has been a great experience and has given me opportunities to become involved in the Section that I likely would not have had without being a Fellow. The Fellows program allows young lawyers to become actively involved in the Section from day one and provides encouragement and support during the Fellowship term to engage in substantive work, expand your professional network, and gain new perspectives regarding issues affecting your practice area. One of the most rewarding aspects of my Fellowship was learning through regular conversations how issues in other practice areas overlap or affect my practice area. The structure of the program gives you time to really meet people, learn what they do, and converse about issues that affect your practice areas. You also get opportunities to propose new ideas to Section leadership, present at CLE meetings or on calls, and contribute to the work accomplished by your smaller substantive group or the larger Section. My experience during my Fellowship term was extremely rewarding and I look forward to remaining actively involved in the Section in the future.
