Over the summer of 2018, James interned as a research assistant at the University of Chicago’s Abrams Environmental Law Clinic, where he conducted and organized research that eventually contributed to a published legal analysis. James hopes to continue developing his skills and continue working to mitigate climate change in order to shape a more sustainable future.
