Joshua spent the summer after his first year studying abroad at the Université Jean Moulin Lyon 3, and the fall of his third year as an extern for Judge James Brady at the United States Court for the Middle District of Louisiana. After graduation, Joshua clerked for Judge Marilyn C.

  • While working with his former firm in a commercial liability case, Joshua authored a Motion for Summary Judgment which obtained a dismissal of the plaintiff’s claims against his client.
