Jenner & Block

Northwestern Black Law Students Association

Jenner & Block Partner Reginald J Hill fielded a variety of questions from students eager to learn about a law career.  Topics covered included paths to partnerships, the underrepresentation of black lawyers in Big Law, getting connections or experience in the legal field and pitfalls that students of color should avoid.  Other firms that were represented on the panel included Kirkland & Ellis, Sidley Austin and Baker & McKenzie.  The program was held at Northwestern on February 4, 2019.

Mr. Hill is co-chair of the firm’s Patent Litigation and Counseling Practice.  Corporations seek his counsel on a variety of patent, copyright, trademark and trade secret matters, particularly in relation to technology.
