2019 Summer Intern

Michael is a rising second year law student at NYU School of Law. Originally from Toronto, Ontario, he studied economics during his undergrad at McGill University in Montreal before going to law school. He decided to go to law school because he was interested in applying economic analysis to policy and regulation, which ties into his interest in environmental and water law. The way he sees it, the goal of environmental regulation is for polluters to internalize the cost of their pollution and take efficient curtailment measures as a response. This summer, he is eager to get a deeper understanding of the workings of environmental law and regulation, and is happy to be able to do so while supporting the great work at CWAC. In his free time he enjoys reading ancient history, making furniture, and playing guitar.
