Dr. Long earned his Juris Doctor degree from the University of Pennsylvania Law School after earning his Bachelor’s degree from Howard University (magna cum laude), where he was admitted to Phi Beta Kappa. He is member of the State Bar of Georgia, in good standing (inactive).

During Dr. Long’s nearly decade of government service as a Special Agent with the Office of Labor Racketeering, he investigated cases pertaining to the influence of organized crime in labor unions.

Dr. Long served with distinction as a Special Agent and was awarded several awards for meritorious service.

After leaving government service, Dr. Long embarked on a distinguished career in teaching and has taught at several institutions of higher learning, including California State University, Long Beach and Dominican University of California.
