Despite the Covid-19 Pandemic, Jonathan continued his law school career online (via Zoom) and graduated from the University of Massachusetts School of Law in June 2021. After two internships at the District Attorney’s Office in Fall River, MA, Jonathan completed an independent study project on the Supreme Court’s infamous case, Wilburn Boat, under the direct supervision of one of the school’s top deans.
