11/1/08 CLSR Fellow Works with State Office of Energy & Environmental Affairs

(Boston, Revised 11/13/09) New England Law | Boston: Center for Law and Social Responsibility (CLSR) Fellow Susan Walton (‘08) is currently interning with the Massachusetts Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs, working in the Natural Resource Damages (NRD) unit.  She does research and provides reports on ground water supplies.

The NRD oversees injuries to natural resources managed by or held in trust by the Commonwealth for the public. This includes fish, wildlife, threatened and endangered species and their habitats, groundwater, drinking water supplies, lakes, ponds, wetlands, coastal and marine resources, and other sensitive resources. The NRD process usually includes assessing and quantifying the injury, determining the damage, and planning and implementing restoration or replacement of the affected resource.

In addition to her work at the NRD, Ms. Walton assists Professor Peter Manus, CLSR co-director, with his Environmental Policy class. As the CLSR fellow, she also supports the Criminal Justice Project, Immigration Law Project, Women’s and Children’s Advocacy Project, and the Public Service Project. During the year-long fellowship, she will also develop and complete at least one public interest law project.

Ms. Walton plans a career in state or public interest law. An Arizona native, she received a bachelor’s degree from Knox College in Galesburg, IL.
