Colin A. Kelly
Class of 2009
Staff Attorney at Orange County Coastkeepers, Costa Mesa, CA
Why do you enjoy this practice area?
Unlike many varieties of the law, environmental law provides attorneys with the ability to see concrete and positive results from litigation and advocacy. Drafting comment letters to regulatory agencies, testifying before panels, and enforcing the Clean Water Act not only improves the legal framework behind water quality, but it actually improves the quality of the environment we all enjoy. Essentially, environmental law is a rewarding enterprise I would recommend to any aspiring attorney.
