Johannesburg, South Africa
Ian Collins grew up in Redding, California where he developed a love for snowboarding and an interest in law at nearby Mt. Shasta. To distract him from the cold lift rides up the mountain, Ian’s father, a civil litigator, would discuss his cases with Ian, never knowing those conversations would result in law school. Ian served a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to Madagascar, where he became fluent in Malagasy. Ian attended BYU and graduated with a degree in political science in April 2014. While at BYU he spent a semester in Washington D.C. on BYU’s Washington Seminar Program as an intern for the Federal Judicial Center. Ian is now in his first year at BYU’s J. Reuben Clark Law School and is looking forward to working in Johannesburg this summer.
