Bryan Townsend ’09JD

Before picking up his Yale law degree this spring, Bryan Townsend ’09JD studied economics, philosophy, and disabilities law in China, England, and his native Delaware. What better way, then, to bring together his interests and experiences than… swimming the English Channel? There is a connection, actually, aside from a passion for distance swimming that dates to Townsend’s high school days: he is undertaking the 15-hour Channel crossing as a fund-raiser for Special Olympics Delaware and the Haidian Peizhi Special School in Beijing. Townsend headed to England this week to prepare for the swim, the date of which will depend on the weather and currents. After his one-man assault of the coast of Normandy, the bar exam—which most of his fellow law graduates are taking this month—may seem like a kiddie pool.
