Beyond Grades: How to Distinguish Yourself

Ken Payson is Davis Wright Tremaine’s Seattle office hiring partner, and he has been actively involved in the Asian Bar Association of Washington, the Washington State Minority & Justice Commission, and the Minority Bar Associations of Washington.  His practice focuses on class action defense, other complex commercial litigation and appellate work, particularly with respect to claims under state and federal consumer protection laws.  Mr. Payson has nearly a dozen years of experience in law firm hiring, and he will share his views on what makes an applicant stand out.  He will talk about looking beyond grades and developing other important personal and professional attributes.  He will also discuss the importance of volunteer activity, pro bono work, and service to the profession.
