After serving as the firm’s law clerk for over a year, Bennett joined the firm immediately after graduating from UW Madison Law School in 2024. During law school, Bennett prioritized coursework focused on the public sector including public education law, administrative and regulatory law, land use controls, and four semesters in the Government and Legislative Clinic.
