While in law school, Bethany was the President of the Real Estate Law Student Group where she engaged students interested in Real Estate law with various facets of the real estate industry such as development, legal careers, and finance. Specifically, Bethany held panels and events with professionals in the real estate industry and legal field so that students could personally interact with those individuals and learn from their experiences.

Prior to joining CYP's Chicago office, Bethany worked for the Environmental Law and Policy Center as a Baum Intern where she researched and analyzed multiple environmental issues pertaining to energy and agricultural industries. Furthermore, Bethany worked as a judicial extern for the Honorable Patricia S. Spratt in the Chancery Division of the Circuit Court of Cook County, conducting legal research and drafting bench briefs for mortgage foreclosure cases. While a judicial extern, Bethany also attended Mortgage Foreclosure and Restorative Justice hearings. During the Restorative Justice hearings Bethany listened to cases about individuals from ages 18-24 seeking to complete the Restorative Justice Program and crafted solutions so that the individuals were not negatively affected throughout life with a criminal conviction. Outside of Bethany's internship and judicial externship, she worked as a law clerk at a personal injury firm where she developed strategies to benefit injured clients and at a real estate and land use firm where she comprised project narratives and conducted municipal code research to best assist the clients' development projects.

While growing within the legal profession, Bethany is working diligently with her team in the Chicago office on litigation and transactional legal matters involving environmental, corporate, and real estate law. Bethany is excited to expand her legal experience and knowledge at Chilton Yambert Porter.
