Palmer Center Fellows

Shannon Kelly - Palmer Center Fellow, Pepperdine Law

Shannon Kelly, JD 2013

In-House Counsel, Zico Beverages, LLC

"My experience as a Palmer Fellow armed me with the tools and confidence I rely on every day as an in-house attorney."

 

I am grateful for my experience as a Palmer Fellow, not only because it enriched my time during law school and allowed me to build important relationships, but also because it armed me with the tools and confidence I rely on every day as an in-house attorney.

At Palmer, our mentors and professors challenged us to seek unique opportunities and take uncommon, sometimes uncomfortable steps along our career paths. In my current role, I counsel my client through a wide range of risk v. reward scenarios. I'm tasked with putting myself in the business person's shoes while standing firm in my own so that I can clearly communicate the legal implications of key decisions. To do this well requires business savvy. I credit Palmer Center for setting a good foundation.

In a world where entrepreneurship, creativity, and business management skills are more important than ever, all attorneys should strive to expand their understanding of these important areas.
