However, the ABC correspondent had no interest in following in his father’s footsteps. In an interview with The New York Times back in 2014, Dan revealed that he attended law school because he was unable to find his purpose in life. Abrams graduated with a B. An in political science from Duke University and then attended the Columbia Law School in 1989.
