Buskey addressing his fellow New York University School of Law graduates at commencement.

Brandon Buskey (BA, Psychology ’02) attributes his professional and personal success to his many experiences at NC State University. Buskey recently accepted a position with the Criminal Law Reform Project (CLRP) of the American Civil Liberties Union, where he hopes to make a living out of his passion: criminal justice reform.

While at NC State, Buskey was a Truman Scholar, Park Scholar, Caldwell Fellow, and an active member of Phi Beta Kappa, Phi Kappa Phi, and the Order of 30 and 3. Buskey is a former assistant attorney general in the Civil Rights Bureau in the Office of the New York State Attorney General and a former staff attorney with the Equal Justice Initiative.  “Through all of my experiences I’ve come to realize that my passion is criminal justice reform, and CLRP offers a wonderful opportunity for me to do exactly that with a wonderful group of colleagues,” Buskey said.
