He was also a member of and published contributor to the Journal of Intellectual Property Law. During law school, Mr. Wilson had the opportunity to extern for the U.S. Attorney’s Office, Tennessee Attorney General’s Office, Liberty Justice Center, and Northeast Georgia Health System.

Additionally, Mr. Wilson wrote his student note on technology law, helped develop electronic discovery solutions for a large regional hospital system, and is interested in the growing intersection between new technologies and the law.
