RssEnvironmental Regulation and Policy

I am extremely interested in Environmental Conservation, including research, policy, and compliance, and have pursued an educational route that I felt was tailored to this field. I have an undergraduate degree in Biology from UC San Diego, and a Juris Doctorate from Santa Clara School of Law, where I focused on Administrative and Environmental Law. As a recent graduate from law school, I have been looking for an opportunity to get my foot in the door in the environmental protection and conservation field.
