    elizabeth turner“I participated in the Summer Honors Program at the U.S. EPA Office of General Counsel in D.C. As a clerk in the Water Law Office, I worked on a variety of assignments for ongoing litigation involving permits and regulations promulgated under the Clean Water Act. My summer was an excellent experience and reaffirmed my desire to pursue a career in environmental law.”
