Sophomore Missy Martin recently accepted a position in Vermont Law School’s New Frontiers in Environmental Science summer program. Vermont Law School is ranked number one in the nation for environmental law by U.S. News and World Report. Martin will join five other undergraduate students and approximately 15 Juris Doctor students in her summer classes.
The program aims to aid undergraduate students in becoming agents of change. Martin, who hopes to apply to graduate school to complete a dual degree in environmental science and environmental law, said participating in the program is the first step in accomplishing this goal. “I can change policy, change destructive habits and change communities. I want to change the world – not just fit in it,” she said. “This opportunity allows me to experience first-hand what it means to pursue a law degree. I have the chance to collaborate with amazing people from a variety of backgrounds who aspire to channel their unique talents, passions and ideas to sustain a healthy, just and thriving planet through the power of the law.”
