Bio highlights: Grant joined Legal Aid of North Carolina in 2024 as a Case Coordinator on our Pro Bono Programs team. He earned his bachelor’s in political science and communications, with a minor in conflict management, from UNC Chapel Hill in 2024. During his junior and senior years, he worked for the Carolina Center for Public Service on its Engagement Week project, an annual, week-long celebration of research institutions and communities working together to improve the lives of residents. Between his junior and senior years, he interned with the NC Division of Juvenile Justice, where he helped children who had committed criminal acts avoid jail time and further involvement with the justice system. “The legal system can seem big and scary to people unfamiliar with it,” said Grant. “I enjoy helping people navigate the system and relieving them of that fear.”
