Kassie Kometami

Legal Intern - 2022

Education/Professional Background: I moved to Portland in 2015 to attend Lewis & Clark College and majored in Environmental Studies. After graduating, I went straight on to Lewis & Clark Law School.

Hometown: Hawi, Hawaii

What brought you to Crag? I selected Crag as my practicum placement in the Environmental Practicum course where students work 10 hours a week and receive credit along with participating in a class component. I knew of the awesome work done by Crag so I was excited by the possibility of gaining experience here during my last semester of law school.

What are your environmental/legal interests? I am particularly interested in environmental justice issues for low-income and minority communities, as well as Native Hawaiian rights.

What will your work focus on while at Crag? My work will focus on research and providing case support as needed.
