In this episode of WesternStateCoffeeTalk, we sit down with alumni Brian Derby. Brian (’16) continued working full-time in the IT industry while attending Western State as a part-time student. Brian came in with a plan – obtain his J.D. to complement his work in the IT industry and expand his job opportunities. Throughout our discussion, Brian talks about what kept him motivated to achieve his goals, how what he learned in law school helped better equip him to succeed in his new job as an IT compliance officer, and why he had such a valuable, memorable experience here at Western State.
