Second Lieutenant Christian “C.J.” Nee is a recent graduate of Scalia Law and a three semester Student Advisor with M-VETS. During law school, C.J. was an evening student, working full-time during the day as a paralegal at the Department of Justice and later as a Law Clerk on the Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations for U.S. Senator Tom Carper’s Office. Prior to attending law school, C.J. graduated summa cum laude from Florida State University with a double major in Political Science and Criminal Justice and Criminology.

After graduating law school in 2017, C.J. entered Officer Candidate School (“OCS”) in Fort Benning, Georgia. Forgoing direct commission as a JAG Officer after law school, C.J. spent 12 weeks at OCS and was commissioned as a military intelligence officer in the United States Army.
