Gracie Smith joined our New Lawyers Group (NLG) in 2019. The NLG provides our newest lawyers with the opportunity to gain exposure to different practice areas and lawyering styles before making a commitment to a specific practice. Individuals in the NLG may focus on a particular area of practice, or compare practices, during their first year with Jones Day.

While in law school, Gracie completed a year-long clinic providing legal services to social enterprises and impact investors conducting cross-border transactions in emerging markets. In addition, she participated in the semester-long NYU Law Abroad program in Shanghai, China, with a substantive focus on Chinese business law, development finance, and East Asian markets. She also spent three months working with a legal NGO in Kampala, Uganda. Prior to law school, Gracie worked for three years in the fixed income division of a leading multinational financial institution in New York City, and she also taught high school mathematics for two years in Memphis, Tennessee with Teach For America.
