NLawProud: Sherrese Smith (JD ’96)


Sherrese Smith (JD ’96) may be surprised to be called a pathbreaker, but charting the way for others has always been an important part of her journey. Sherrese’s career hasn’t been a straight path: law firms, in-house counsel at the Washington Post, and even time at the Federal Communications Commission before joining Paul Hastings, LLP as Managing Partner. Sherrese wants those coming after her to know, embrace career curves. And if she can do it, so can you.
