Julia Verdi, 2009 Masters Graduate, Serves as Research Analyst at the National Conference of State Legislatures

Julia Verdi, a 2009 graduate in the Masters of Resource Law Studies program at the University of Denver Sturm College of Law, has been hired as a Research Analyst II in the Energy, Environment, and Transportation Program at the National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL) in Denver. Ms. Verdi began as an intern at NCSL last year and was hired full time in November 2010.

According to Ms. Verdi:
"A good portion of my job is researching energy legislation for state senators, representatives, and their staff. I also am able to write about energy legislation. Recently I helped write a paper about state policy options for alternative fuels. I also help plan meetings and will be going to Washington, D.C., this week to help with the NCSL Spring Forum. I am really enjoying the work, and the master's program at DU definitely gave me a great background for this line of work."

All of us at DU wish Julia much success as she contributes in a very real way to helping state legislatures have a better understanding of state energy policies.
