Associate Professor of Law
Much of my writing on deforestation and climate change is related to my work with the Governors Climate and Forests Task Force (www.gcftaskforce.org). I also include this work in my climate change class. I have hired multiple students to work on the project over the last several years, and I have taken several students to various GCF meetings around the world.
I have been doing public service environmental work since I was in college. I believe that the climate/energy/environment challenge is one of the great challenges of our time. I am thankful to have the opportunity to work on these issues.
I worked at the environmental enforcement division at the Justice Department one summer.
Stay the course. Build your skills. Get some seasoning and experience wherever you can. Don’t avoid working at a law firm just because you may not like the matters that you end up working on — think about where you want to be in 10 years and the skill set that you need as a lawyer to get there. Always have an exit strategy for any job you take. Life is short.
