The article traces her early days as a debate student – she initially competed in policy debate because of a school requirementand won first place at Nationals her senior year in high school – to her work at Jenner & Block. The article highlights Ms. Harrison’s commitment to pro bono work, including the immigration case that she successfully argued, as an associate, before the US Supreme Court in 2009. She has also taken on challenges such as death penalty work and work in favor of scientists and government integrity. Asked to give advice to speech and debate students considering a legal career, Ms. Harrison suggests reading prolifically and writing clearly and efficiently. “Being thoughtful and purposeful from the start will help you get to a happy place and love what you do,” she concludes.
