Name:  Natalie McNeill
Education/Professional Background: I am a first-year law student at Lewis and Clark Law School, planning to focus on environmental and animal law.
Hometown: Redding, CT
What brought you to Crag? I want to pursue environmental law and I am particularly interested in plaintiff-side nonprofit legal work. I thought an externship at Crag would be a great way to apply what I have learned in law school to real-life practice.
What are your environmental/legal interests? I am interested in environmental law (still narrowing my focus but particularly interested in environmental justice issues) and the nexus between environmental and animal law.
What will you focus on while at Crag? Research and writing.
Favorite place to recreate or be in nature: The Oregon coast. There are great places to hike and the ocean is beautiful.
Favorite book: Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury
Favorite quote: Everything happens for a reason.
