Henry Lifton


Henry Lifton is a native of Park Ridge, Illinois. He graduated from the United States Military Academy in 2008 where he majored in political science. Henry commissioned as an engineer officer in the U.S. Army and moved to Fort Bragg, NC, to lead paratroopers, where he foolishly jumped out of an airplane 21 times. He deployed to Haiti in 2010 to provide humanitarian aid after a massive earthquake and Iraq in 2011 to help with the U.S. drawdown effort. Henry then worked for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in Washington, D.C. He spent his 1L summer with the San Francisco City Attorney’s office, rolling back the fog with his sunny disposition. The fog remains. During his 2L summer, Hank worked as a law clerk for Ropes & Gray in Chicago and San Francisco. Henry is fascinated by the multiverse and the other great unknowns of this universe.
