Chicago partner Jesse Ruiz participated in a panel discussion, titled, “Giving Back While Growing Your Career: The How and Why of Non-Profit Service,” with law students at The University of Chicago Law School on Wednesday, February 19.

Jesse was joined on the panel by moderator Richard L. Sevcik from K&L Gates, Thomas Cole from Sidley Austin and Courtney VanLonkhuyzen from Motorola.

The panelists discussed the following topics: the importance for lawyers to be engaged in the community; how they have personally benefited; what skills they have developed as a result of the participations; how they chose an organization; how one gets involved; and if it’s important for an in-house lawyer to be involved with charitable organizations.
