Bennett Lunn is pursuing a JD at Columbia Law School. Prior to Columbia, Bennett served as a Truman-Albright Fellow at the US Department of Education where he supported the work of the National Center for Education Research and the National Center for Special Education Research. He worked closely with the Office of the Secretary of Education to support the nation’s schools as they addressed pandemic related learning loss.
Bennett graduated from the University of South Carolina (USC) with a degree in legal philosophy and education policy in 2020. While at USC, he interned with the South Carolina Attorney General’s Office, the Institute for College Access and Success, and House Majority Whip James E.
