Milken’s college-preparatory courses challenged Aiden to hone his time management and writing skills before embarking on his undergraduate and graduate studies. Aiden noted, “Milken provided me with an excellent education that set me on a path for success in college and subsequently in law school.” Aiden realized early in his college journey that his advanced coursework in high school was comparable to his college workload, which gave him an advantage over his university classmates.
After graduating from Milken in 2009, Aiden earned his B.A. in European History from UC Santa Cruz in 2013 and both a law degree and certificate of criminal legal practice from Pepperdine University School of Law in 2016. Following law school, Aiden commissioned in the U.S. Navy and became a member of the California Bar Association.
