Hannah Brubach joined CLA in January 2019. As Staff Attorney, Hannah joins us through our exciting new partnership with Environmental Action Center. Hannah has spent the past year working for Maryland Department of the Environment where she collaborated with the U.S. Climate Alliance, the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative, and the Maryland Commission on Climate Change to analyze and develop successful climate policy to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in Maryland. Prior to MDE, Hannah volunteered with CLA to analyze the legal foundations of citizen complaints and evaluate strategies for states to employ in their Chesapeake Bay TMDL Phase III Watershed Implementation Plans. Hannah completed her Juris Doctor and Master’s in Environmental Law and Policy at Vermont Law School. Earning a Certificate in Water Resources Law, Hannah focused both of her degrees on the impacts of agriculture on water resources in the Chesapeake Bay Watershed. Hannah holds a B.S. in Environmental Science from Elizabethtown College where she studied the impacts of mill dam removal, and the stream restoration that follows, on macroinvertebrates in Lancaster County Pennsylvania.
