From CIA to TBA

Brad Caldwell meets the most convincing law school recruiter ever

Brad Caldwell never planned to be a lawyer. He just wanted to keep his options open and possibly keep working for the CIA. As an undergrad at Texas A&M University, Caldwell had taken part in the agency's cooperative education program. "They're effectively internships," Caldwell says.
