Marissa Galloway JD ’20, along with Alexandria Roullier JD ’20 and Tom Housel JD ’20, present their policy research on integrating labor standards into climate change policy to the Select Committee on the Climate Crisis. The U.S. House of Representatives created this committee in 2018 with the charge of developing climate policy recommendations for congressional action. Under the supervision of Assistant Professor Greg Dotson, ten students in the Environmental Policy Practicum class researched law and policy questions for the Committee. They traveled to Washington, DC, in November 2019 to present their research to the Select Committee and to discuss their work with policymakers.
“I would recommend Oregon Law to others because of the variety of practical experiences it offers its students: from clinics, student groups, classes like Trial Practice and Contract Drafting, to externships.”
