After law school, Beej became federal law clerk to Hon. Judge Benson Everett Legg of the United States District Court for Maryland where he helped decide cases ranging from civil rights, affirmative action and discrimination, commercial disputes, maritime matters, consumer protection, intellectual property, to drugs and other criminal matters.
