In his commencement address on Sunday, former acting U.S. Solicitor General Neal Katyal advised the University of Virginia School of Law’s graduating class of 2012 that being a good lawyer requires an open mind, being principled and thinking independently.
After graduating from the University of Virginia School of Law, Chris Wimbush will be clerking for a judge on the “Rocket Docket” — the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, nicknamed for its rapid handling of cases. It’s a prestigious job, but it also suits Wimbush’s nature. In his three years here, he hurtled through an impressive list of activities, from organizing a business proposal competition to conducting research with professors.
