Alison Eastley, a recent University of Denver Sturm College of Law JD graduate who will also earn an LLM in December from College of Law's Environmental and Natural Resources Law (ENRL) program, has been hired by one of the west's top law firms Holland & Hart.
While enrolled in the ENRL program, Ms. Eastley interned with the Rocky Mountain Institute and the Colorado Water Conservation Board. Both internships gave her the opportunity "to learn from great minds and influential professionals in Colorado's environmental fields," she said.
Between her internships and LLM classes, Ms. Eastley gained practical experience and deepened her understanding of water law and land use.
Ms. Eastley said that she is "thrilled to have found a job in my field where I will be working as a water law and land use attorney with Holland & Hart beginning in January 2011."
