During the summers of 2016-2018, Knapp studied international law in Spetses, Greece in a program created by Thanassi Yiannopoulos, considered by many to be the father of the modern-day Louisiana Civil Code. There his Professors included highly respected legal scholars and judges, including former Judge Madeleine Landrieu previously of the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeal for the State of Louisiana (presently the Dean of Loyola University College of Law), Judge Carl Barbier (District Judge of the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana), and Judge Carl Stewart (Chief Judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit).
Knapp also studied law in Vienna, Austria in the summer of 2018. When not practicing law, Knapp enjoys traveling to countries across the globe and hopes to use the insight that he acquires in those experiences and integrate them into his law practice; having an interest in International law, International human rights, and Immigration.
He initiates his career with a general civil law practice with an emphasis on Plaintiff’s practice, having been a law clerk at the Knapp Law Firm for several years. He has actively participated in several lawsuits and depositions, including significant legal research and analysis in the suit filed in New Orleans against the NFL for the “No Call” in which his mother Mary Grace Knapp is a named Plaintiff.
