CTP Fellows

Catherine Pratt - 2L - Bowerman Fellow
Catherine is originally from Tallahassee, Florida but has lived all over the Gulf Coast. She received a B.A. in Public Health from Agnes Scott College and studied Spanish in both Ecuador and Spain. She has been interested in using the law to protect the environment since she was in high school and decided to follow the call of the mountains and head out to the west coast to achieve this dream. In her free time, she enjoys running, gardening, playing soccer, and hiking.


Erin Yoder Logue - 2L- Bowerman Fellow 
Erin moved west from Rhode Island specifically to study natural resource law. Before law school, she spent seven years working in development and management positions at organizations like the Muscular Dystrophy Association and United Way. Erin was inspired to pursue this field of law after completing a month-long road trip through America’s National Parks. In particular, the wildlife and landscapes she saw in the Pacific Northwest influenced her decision to study at the University of Oregon. Currently, Erin is interested in implementing legal policies that protect wildlife and its habitat. She spent her summer as a Law & Policy Intern with Wildlands Network in Seattle, where she researched current environmental regulations and drafted model legislation that provided stronger protections for wildlife on both the state and federal levels. Wildlands Network presented her work at the National Caucus of Environmental Legislators Forum in 2018. At the forum, legislators approached Erin, interested in implementing the policies she had written in their state. The experience has energized her to continue researching and producing innovative conservation strategies as a Fellow of the ENR Center.
