As Mr. Rice was entering his third year of law school at Loyola University New Orleans College of Law, hurricane Katrina was bearing down on the gulf coast. Once the storm had passed, residents were unable to return and the Law School decided to cancel the fall semester of the year. Needing to complete his studies, Mr. Rice, along with all other students in New Orleans, was forced to find another Law School to complete their studies. With ties to Maryland, Mr. Rice contacted The University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law. They immediately welcomed him with open arms and he was able to continue his studies.
During his third year of Law School at the University of Maryland Mr. Rice was offered an internship with the Baltimore County State's Attorney's Office. He was placed in the gang unit within the State's Attorney's Office and was immediately exposed to the intricacies of criminal prosecution. Upon completion of his third year at the University of Maryland School of Law, he returned to New Orleans to receive his Juris Doctor from Loyola University New Orleans College of Law. He immediately returned to Maryland to prepare for the bar exam.
