Fellows Spotlight: Meet Raina Shipman

The Business Law Section Diversity Fellowship Program is designed to assist a diverse and inclusive group of lawyers in becoming better leaders within our profession and the Business Law Section, while enhancing their leadership skills, as an encouragement and commitment to attract young and diverse lawyers to join, participate and ultimately serve in leadership positions of the Business Law Section. The Business Law Section will be celebrating the 10th anniversary of its Fellowship Program with the incoming 2023 class. Applications are being accepted until April 1st. The Inclusion/Mentorship/Fellowship Committee will be sharing Fellow Spotlights to allow the Section to get to know our outstanding current fellows on a weekly basis leading up to the application deadline.

If you know a dynamic business law attorney, encourage them to apply here.

Raina Shipman is a member of the 2021-2023 Class of the Florida Business Law Section Fellowship Program.

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve received?

Maintaining personal and professional connections with your peers is important. Your reputation will have a significant impact on the trajectory of your career.

What has been your best experience from your time as a Fellow?
I have greatly enjoyed my time on the Financial Literacy committee. During my time on the committee, Florida passed legislation requiring high school students to take a financial course before graduating. Financial literacy is very important to me and I love having a part in spreading this education throughout the state of Florida.

Do you have any pets?
Yes, I have a very energetic and loving miniature schnauzer.
