The Chesapeake Legal Alliance provided me with an exceptional opportunity to hone my legal skills while also working on important environmental issues. The CLA attorneys communicate well, are enthusiastic advocates, and have in-depth experience working with the Clean Water Act. During my time at the CLA I was assigned to work on various projects and cases while also attending staff and coalition meetings. Each workday I felt as if I was contributing to a worthy mission while also gaining important legal experience. I recommend working for the Chesapeake Legal Alliance to any law student looking for practical experience on environmental issues.
