”My role as a law intern for a marine conservation institute contributed greatly toward my primary career goal of attending law school to study environmental law. Prior to starting this internship, I was very confident that environmental law was what I wanted to study and pursue my career in. However, I did not have any law background, nor any experience in environmental studies. Having studied international relations and foreign policy, there are certainly similarities, but I definitely needed something to assure myself that this is what I could see myself dedicating my life to. This internship has been amazing in this respect as it was somewhat of a crash course introduction into law and policy and how we can use it to protect the natural world.”
