Joe Wagner - Veteran, Marine Corps

The Veterans Clinic was the main reason why I came to the Law School. It was very helpful being a veteran myself and working in the clinic. Whether I’m employed as in-house counsel for a corporation or working with national security law at a federal agency, I’ll always want to do pro bono work for veterans.
