Maurice “Reece” Riden II, Class of 2018


Atlanta’s John Marshall Law School gave me the opportunity to pursue my education in a very small, close-knit, environment. I attended a small school for my undergraduate degree, and I wanted to experience the same environment for law school. During my time at John Marshall, I was very involved in many areas including being a Student Ambassador, which led to being voted Student Ambassador of the Year, and being a student-aide in the Michael J. Lynch Law Library. In addition, one of my most memorable accomplishments while at John Marshall was being named the National Vice Justice of the Year for Phi Alpha Delta. The sense of a family is exemplified by the students, faculty, and staff at Atlanta’s John Marshall Law School, and it carries over as an alumni. As the Staff Attorney to a State Court Judge in Hall County, I frequently run into AJMLS Alumni. We always treat each other like family, and I am forever grateful that I belong to a group that continues to leave a positive footprint in the legal community.
