photo of Justin PruettJustin ‘JP’ Pruett ’11 has worked as a law clerk in the Legal Affairs department of MetLife, Inc., and as an extern with Judge Edward Clifton of the Rhode Island Superior Court.  At RWU Law, JP is president of the Student Bar Association and a past president of the Multi-Cultural Law Student’s Association. He won first place in the 2010 Herbert Wechsler Criminal Law Moot Court competition, the country’s premier contest for that area of law. JP and his teammate topped Duke and a field of teams from other law schools across the nation to win championship honors.

JP is a resident of Harrisonburg, Virginia, and a self-described “immigrant from the South,” having grown up in Nashville, Tennessee. Before law school, he worked as a litigation paralegal for a private law firm and as a casualty insurance adjuster. JP notes, “RWU Law is a school where students have a chance to discover and showcase their true abilities, while at the same time recognizing that they have a special place in our society as key players in the development of the nation’s public service law.”
