May Spotlight: Jennifer K. Choi
This month's spotlight is Jennifer Choi, an associate lawyer at McCarthy Tétrault and a current member of FACL BC.
1. How did you first get involved with FACL BC?
I first got involved as a law student at UBC.
2. What has been your favourite FACL event or initiative so far?
I really enjoyed the 2022 Gala. It was so inspiring to see such a large gathering of Asian Canadian lawyers. It was also such a delight to connect with everyone in person again!
3. What is something that not many people know about you?
I have a PhD in Biochemistry. Law was a "second career" for me. It's never too late to change course and sometimes you end up where you least expected.
4. What advice would you give yourself if you were to go back in time?
If I could go back in time, I would tell myself that everyone is "faking it 'til they make it". I had a lot of imposter syndrome during my first few years as an associate in litigation. I've since learned that so many great lawyers that I look up to have had the same feelings of doubt and uncertainty.
