Early life and career

After graduating from Evanston Township High School, where he won the Illinois State Policy Debate championship in 1993, Carter attended Duke University, where he obtained a Bachelor of Arts with a double major in philosophy and political science.

After graduating from Duke University, Carter served in the Peace Corps stationed in South Africa. In doing so he followed the example of his great grand mother, Lillian Carter (President Jimmy Carter's mother), who became a Peace Corps volunteer at age 68 and spent nearly two years in India working as a nurse with patients with leprosy. Jason Carter lived in Lochiel, South Africa, where he worked on education issues in rural areas. He learned to speak Zulu and Siswati. He wrote a book, titled Power Lines, about his experiences there.

Carter later attended the University of Georgia School of Law, graduating summa cum laude with a Juris Doctor in 2004. He clerked for Frank M. Hull on the United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit after graduating from law school.

He is currently a partner at the law firm of Bondurant, Mixson & Elmore in Atlanta. He has represented the National Football League Players Association and won the Stuart Eizenstat Young Lawyer Award, given by the Anti-Defamation League, for his pro bono work defending voting rights.
