Making Mentors: Top 75 Women Litigators

Daily Journal

The Daily Journal honored the work of California's top women litigators, including Keker & Van Nest partners Jan Little and Susan Harriman.

On the topic of mentoring, Ms. Harriman says she found an influential mentor in John Keker. "John instilled in us a fierce desire to achieve excellence, both in our written work and in the courtroom, and proved that trying cases (and being a lawyer) is fun."  

Ms. Little added, "It's hard to find the time in our busy practice to stop and reflect on our work. But taking time to examine 'why' is an important learning experience for the young lawyer and the mentor alike."
