Goldberg Segalla’s Alana R. Glover was appointed to and served on the Mentorship Program Selection Committee for The Appellate Project, a national organization dedicated to increasing diversity among appellate lawyers and judges by creating appellate practice opportunities for law students of color.
Continuing her commitment to help students, Alana, an attorney in Goldberg Segalla’s Civil Litigation and Trial practice, has also volunteered to mentor a student in the 2021-22 class. “The best lessons I learned throughout law school were from my mentors,” Alana said. “Although you learn the basics of the law from the classroom, learning how to be a successful lawyer comes from those who came before you.”
The Appellate Project’s Mentorship Program is the first national effort focused on empowering law students of color to pursue appellate work by pairing interested students with mentors in the appellate field. The students are also provided appellate-focused resources like clerkship support, networking opportunities with the appellate bar, skill-building workshops, and more.
Alana R. Glover concentrates her practice on civil litigation matters with a focus on the retail and hospitality sectors. Prior to entering private practice, Alana gained experience as a law clerk for the Hon. Andrea M. Leahy at the Maryland Court of Special Appeals, drafting opinions based on an array of legal matters, from administrative appeals to complex criminal matters.
