In March her commitment and dedication to the law school and the practice of law were recognized by the New Jersey Women Lawyers Association. The same month she was selected as the winner of the 2014 Mark T. Banner Scholarship, a national award given to one aspiring IP lawyer each year by the Richard Linn American Inn of Court. It’s the kind of recognition that would not have seemed possible to the 17-year-old immigrant from Bangladesh who felt lost in her small-town Virginia high school. An ESL teacher, her first mentor, helped Shangeeta find a talent for math that would lead to a successful career in engineering and an interest in patent law. | Read Story
