A few weeks ago, we gained a new colleague here at UCLA Law: Rhead Enion. Rhead, a graduate of Duke University Law School, Stanford, and the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies, is our new Emmett/Frankel Fellow in Environmental Law and Policy. He has worked as a research fellow at Duke’s Nicholas Institute and has interned with Oceana, the Chesapeake Bay Foundation, and the ACLU of North Carolina.
Rhead will be working with us on all sorts of projects over the coming two years, and will be blogging here (he already started, actually). His presence here will enable us to increase our capacity for research and outreach.
We’re very fortunate to have the ability to offer this fellowship. Postgraduate environmental law and policy fellowships are rare at law schools. I believe that Harvard, Columbia, and Stanford also offer such fellowships. Though I’m not aware of any others, that doesn’t mean they aren’t out there. (There are also schools that offer fellowships focused on clinical teaching; I’m not including those here.)
