A few weeks ago, Matthew Moore, an attorney from the US Environmental Protection Agency (Region 5, Chicago) visited Tulane Law School. He spoke to a group of students about various opportunities available at the EPA, particularly through the Honor’s Program. He is the current Honor’s Fellow for the office and was able to offer insight into the application process and what the EPA is looking for in the hiring process. He emphasized a “dedication to environmental law” as extremely important to the agency when looking to hire new attorneys. Mr. Moore complimented Tulane Law School’s pre-eminent Environmental Law Program, and the students shared with him details about the Certificate in Environmental Law
, the Environmental Law Society
, and their work on the Environmental Law Journal
. Mr. Moore stated that these are the exact activities that would draw attention to an applicant for a position at the EPA. After his Information Session, he spent the rest of the day in “Informational Interviews” with a number of third-year law students interested in learning more about the EPA, Region 5. The CDO was thrilled that Mr. Moore made himself available so that we could organize these one-on-one sessions with our students. We were very fortunate to have Matthew Moore visit Tulane Law School and share details about his work with the EPA, Region 5.
