Scott Wright, JD '19, and President Obama

“Serving in combat in Iraq and Afghanistan were defining experiences in my life, and my time at war only strengthened my resolve to go to law school. I saw and experienced both the very best and the very worst parts of human nature during my time in combat.  I saw what happens when there is a breakdown of law and order, when the rule of law is no longer respected.”
