LAW SCHOOL EXPERIENCE

During law school, Patrick participated in eight moot court and mock trial competitions across the country, and his ability to effectively present legal arguments earned him multiple individual advocacy awards. As a result of these accomplishments, in his final year of law school he was inducted into the Order of Barristers, a national legal honor society. Patrick also served as an associate editor of the law review, was an officer in several student organizations, and achieved the highest grade in four of his courses. While in law school, Patrick gained practical experience by clerking at the D.C. Attorney General’s Office, as well as interning at a U.S. Attorney’s Office, a private law firm, and a district attorney’s office.
