Sunday, January 17, 2016 - 19:59

Mary Jane Augustine, Newark-based Partner, orchestrated a day-long event for 10 diverse female St. Vincent’s Academy high school students interested in pursuing a legal career. With Augustine, attorneys Kelly Lloyd, Mary Gabriel, Simone Wilson-Brito, Onome Adejemilua and Debra Perry discussed their respective backgrounds and legal specialties, the challenges and rewards of practicing law, and participated in Q&A sessions with the students.

Regarding the event, Augustine commented that the attorneys “all enjoyed the visit as much or more so than the girls.” The girls, however, declared their visit to McCarter & English to be “the best day ever!”
