The Clinic is still held monthly in Eugene, Oregon at the V.A.'s downtown location.

Bryan earned his Doctor of Jurisprudence (J.D.) from the University of Oregon in 2012. He also holds certificates of completion in the Criminal Practice Program, the Pro Bono Law Program, and the Public Interest Public Service Law Program. The Nicole Richardson Outstanding Pro Bono Service Award recognized Bryan's pro bono work during law school. And at graduation, the students elected him to serve as the class commencement speaker. The Pat Tillman Foundation honored Bryan by selecting him as a Tillman Military Scholar.

Bryan continues to participate in focused criminal defense training. He has completed the National Criminal Defense College held at Mercer Law School in Macon, GA. Bryan also completed the National College of Capital Voir Dire held at the University of Colorado Law School. In addition, Bryan has published written materials and presented training on the topic of military records, the Privacy Act, FOIA, and Touhy regulations as applied to criminal defense.

In addition to his law degree, Bryan earned his master degree (M.S.) in public policy from Rutgers University in 2000.
