"Over the last five years I have worked as both an honors paralegal and subsequently as an Honor Grad attorney in ENRD's Environmental Enforcement Section. I cannot imagine a better place to work as a legal professional. In just the last year I have had the opportunity to work on cases involving the Gulf Oil Spill, the sewer system of a major US city, emissions from a large Gulf Coast Refinery, and the failure of an interstate oil pipeline. In each case, I was able to help bring about direct benefit to the environment and the affected communities. ENRD is staffed by a group of skilled professionals who truly care about the Agency's mission and who work every day to improve the lives people around the country."
