essionals and leaders is our own CEO and Founder, Mrs. Kristen A. Corpion, Esq.
“A diverse board of talented professionals who are passionate about the mission of Ms. JD is absolutely fundamental to our organization’s continued success,” said Danielle Allison, CEO of Ms. JD. “I am thrilled to welcome these tremendous individuals to the Ms. JD board, and to have the opportunity to partner with…the entire board as we work to empower aspiring and early career women attorneys.”
Founded at Stanford Law School in 2006 by a group of innovative female law students, Ms. JD is a nonprofit organization that aims to help young women navigate the legal profession. Since its inception, the organization has grown to include numerous chapters across the country and has hosted conferences to bring together current attorneys and law students.
In 2019 alone, Ms. JD has awarded $7,000.00 in public interest scholarships for current law students and has financially supported 4 public interest summer placements. With its primary focus being education, the nonprofit introduced nearly 52 middle girls to what it means to pursue a career in law through their Ready to Rise program.
Mrs. Corpion comments: “I am thrilled to be a member of a Board that celebrates young females in the legal profession. Creating an open dialogue for aspiring modern attorneys is crucial, especially for those that are underrepresented in the profession”.
The Ms. JD Board of Directors is comprised of a diverse set of professionals. From current law students to practicing attorneys, it is clear to see that the Board is designed with the nonprofit’s mission in mind.
This is, however, not Mrs. Corpion’s first time supporting young legal professionals. From being the brains behind Sidebar, a South Florida-based organization that aims to provide resources for modern attorneys, to dedicating her time leading and training Florida International University’s nationally-ranked undergraduate Panther Mock Trial Team, Mrs. Corpion has continuously shown an interest in transforming the legal profession for the better. She also teaches law and business courses at the graduate and undergraduate level at Florida International University.
Just this year, Mrs. Corpion was installed as the current President-Elect of the Dade County Bar Association’s Young Lawyers Section, which is the largest voluntary association of lawyers in South Florida. In June 2020, she will be installed as President of the DCBA YLS, a true testament to her commitment and perseverance.
Additional new members of the Board of Directors include Hailey Hillsman (Student at Cleveland-Marshall College of Law), Carlos Eduardo Julca (Counsel at Keysight Technologies), Ashley Lhérisson (Associate at Sullivan & Cromwell LLP), and Simone Otenaike (Associate at BakerHostetler LLP).
