Parna Mehrbani Talks Developing Professional Identity for Lewis & Clark Law Students

Tonkon Torp partner Parna Mehrbani was a guest speaker at the Lewis & Clark Summer Institute, a week-long program offered by the school’s Academic Enhancement Program. The Summer Institute introduces incoming 1L students to legal studies, law school, and the legal profession.

During her talk, Parna focused on three key areas that contribute to a person’s professional identity. These are identifying and navigating imposterism, being professional in a variety of situations and environments, and maintaining authenticity within entrenched cultural and professional norms. She shared personal anecdotes from her own career as well as general advice on the importance of integrity and honesty in the practice of law.

Parna is Co-Chair of Tonkon Torp’s Information Privacy & Security Practice Group, and a partner in its Intellectual Property Practice Group. Her practice is focused on intellectual property, trademark and copyright registration, licensing and enforcement, and advising on intellectual property portfolios for local, national, and international companies. She also advises businesses on the management and security of personal data and the laws that regulate the collection, use, and protection of personal data.
