PROVIDENCE, R.I. (PRWEB) October 18, 2019
Ian Hutter of Richmond, Virginia, has been awarded the 2019 Chisholm Chisholm & Kilpatrick Law School Scholarship for Veterans of $1500. The scholarship is awarded annually to a veteran who is enrolled at an accredited law school. Hutter, a 12-year U.S. Navy veteran, is pursuing and J.D. and M.B.A. at The College of William & Mary in Virginia.
Hutter has had a remarkable military career in the U.S. Navy as a Flight Officer. On May 3, 2011, he escorted an MV-22 Osprey carrying Osama Bin Laden’s body across the Pakistan Border. His crew asked him if he thought bin Laden’s death signaled the end of the war in Afghanistan.
“I could not answer the question effectively because lawyers and legislators thousands of miles away were the ones who debated and dictated our application of international law,’’ Hutter wrote in his essay.
Upon completion of his service, he enrolled in law school so that he could participate in the creation of the laws by which our service members are bound. Hutter is excited to pursue a career in international law either for the government or in private practice. In the meantime, he is not waiting for his law license to help fellow veterans. He is currently a volunteer at The Lewis B. Puller, Jr. Veterans Benefits Clinic at William & Mary Law School.
