Atticus Lee has spent her life on the move, from Taiwan to Long Island
to California to Texas, so it should come as no surprise that
she took time off between jobs to travel.
LEE, A 2010 LMJ SCHOLARSHIP WINNER and 2013 graduate of the University of California-Davis School of Law, finished a federal clerkship with U.S. District Judge Vanessa D. Gilmore in August (2016) and left on a journey that took her to seven countries in seven weeks. Seeing what she de- scribes as “diverse human and geographical landscapes,” Lee said the long
trip abroad was key to her evolution as a lawyer, advocate and writer.
“I’ve been exposed to so many interesting and diverse cultures,” said Lee, who now works as an
attorney for the U.S. Department of Justice’s Civil Rights Division. “I definitely wouldn’t trade my
luck for anything in the world.”
