Graduating Student Chris Wimbush Builds Bridge to Real-World Law

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. But his biggest impact may be in connecting the Law School community to high-profile policymakers who are practicing what Wimbush himself aspires to do: understand how laws affect real people.
