Justin earned his J.D., cum laude, from Syracuse University College of Law and an M.A. in International Relations from the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs, Syracuse University. Before beginning his legal studies, Justin dedicated himself to service as an Intelligence Analyst in the United States Army National Guard and continued this service throughout law school. While attending Syracuse University, Justin served as an editor for the Journal on Terrorism and Security Analysis and a Human Rights Investigator with the Syrian Accountability Project, documenting war crimes during the Syrian civil war. Justin gained valuable experience in this time through a series of internships as an International Affairs Intern at the Department of State, a NATO Policy Intern at the Department of Defense, and a legal intern at the Department of Homeland Security. Following his graduation, Justin continued his service and transitioned into a role as a Political and Military Strategy Intelligence Analyst for the Department of Defense where he provided all-source intelligence analysis for warfighters and the President’s Daily Brief.
