2002 Graduate Tells What It's Like To Defend Terror Suspect

October 19, 2005

Wazhma Mojaddidi, ’02, was pursuing a quiet law practice in northern California and working as an adjunct professor in McGeorge’s Appellate Advocacy Program a year ago.

That’s all changed. The young Afghani-American has been thrust into the national spotlight as a defense attorney for a Lodi man facing federal charges of providing material support to terrorists. Mojaddidi tells what it’s like to handle a difficult case under intense media scrutiny in a video segment from a San Francisco TV station.
