2021 Diversity & Inclusion Fellowship Student Spotlight

Please share:

Congratulations to the Environmental Law Section’s six 2021 Diversity & Inclusion Fellows! For the past few months, we’ve been highlighting these remarkable law students and their summer fellowship posts. This month, we’re featuring two student Fellows:

Karen Chen (UC Berkeley) recently completed her post with U.S. EPA Region IX. “My summer at the EPA Region 9 Office of Regional Counsel was great! I got to work on a bunch of really interesting projects covering a wide range of subject matter areas in environmental law [such as Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act, and Resource Conservation and Recovery Act]. The best part of the experience was the people! I really enjoyed getting to know and work with the very kind and talented attorneys at EPA and learning about all the twists and turns of their career paths.”

Emma Yip (UC Davis) recently completed her post with Earthjustice. “This summer I got to work on several different assignments at Earthjustice. My favorite assignment was working on a boilerplate comment for the Bureau of Land Management. I also got to help with some state-level environmental health work about a rulemaking to create a buffer zone between oil wells and sensitive receptors. I also presented my work to clients on two occasions, helped develop a land acknowledgment for the SF office, practiced my interviewing skills, and received detailed feedback on a memorandum from two attorneys. Overall, working at Earthjustice was a dream come true and I feel so grateful and excited to be in this field.”
