Samantha is a rising third-year student and co-Editor-in-Chief of Berkeley Law’s Ecology Law Quarterly. She will be spending the summer assisting CLEE with two projects: 1) the creation of a transfer credit system for ecosystem services to encourage sustainable development in San Jose’s Coyote Valley and 2) an exploration of how trade secrecy law might be altered to promote transparent ingredient labeling and reduce toxics in consumer products. Samantha graduated from Williams College in 2014: she is indebted to her liberal arts professors for teaching her how to bring a creative, interdisciplinary perspective to the study of law. Before law school, Samantha worked as a policy fellow for the international oceans protection group Oceana, a legislative aide for California Congressman Sam Farr, and as a research assistant for the nonprofit Migrant Legal Action Program. After graduating from Berkeley Law, she hopes to continue her advocacy work in consumer protection and environmental justice.
