Andrew Teegarden
Water Law Fellow
Getches-Wilkinson Center

Andrew Teegarden is delighted to be the Getches-Wilkinson Center’s newest water fellow! Prior to working for the center, Teegarden interned with EPA Region 7 in their regional council’s office. There he worked on matters ranging from tribal water rights initiatives to CERCLA enforcement. After finishing his undergraduate and J.D. at the University of Missouri-Kansas City and then passing the bar, Teegarden decided to expand his environmental knowledge and practice by attending CU Law as an LL.M. student. Throughout the LL.M. program, he participated in the Acequia Assistance Project, developed research on environmental justice initiatives, and worked with the Getches-Wilkinson Center to host CU’s 43rd Annual Water Law Conference. Andrew Teegarden is excited to bring his knowledge and passion for water resources to this fellowship. His passion for the environment doesn’t stop there though—outside of the legal world, Teegarden loves hiking and cycling all across the beautiful state of Colorado!
