    Law Firm Life: Practical Information for the New Associate

    Throughout his time at Chicago-Kent College of Law, Sanjay Shivpuri dreamed of working as a commercial litigator in a downtown Chicago firm with smart colleagues, generating important work in an office with a view. After graduation, however, he found himself in a different reality, practicing law in a medical malpractice firm far outside the city.

    Today, as a principal at Chuhak & Tecson Shivpuri is realizing his dream. But the keys to where he is today—networking and other practical skills—were not something taught in law school. So he teamed up with fellow Chuhak & Tecson attorney Sachin Shah to begin hosting a discussion at Chicagoland area law schools. An informal event titled “Law firm life: Practical information for the new associate,” their first session took place at Chicago-Kent College of Law.
