After working as an immigration paralegal in various firms in Boston and Los Angeles, Professor Bran commenced his studies at Southwestern where he participated in the Community Lawyering Clinic and the Appellate Litigation Clinic and served as Co-President to the Latino Law Students Association and President to the Student Bar Association. Professor Bran also served as a Teaching Assistant in Contracts, Criminal Law and Procedure, Environmental Law, Torts, and Constitutional Law. He graduated Southwestern with concentrations in Civil Litigation & Advocacy and Public Interest Law.
Abe then completed the second leg of the JD/MBA program at the Drucker School of Management of Claremont Graduate University. His concentrations in Leadership and People & Strategy allowed him to focus his studies on areas of diversity and human capital management within nonprofit spaces.
