Spring at Cascadia Wildlands is marked each year by a handful of aspiring attorneys joining our legal program from various parts of the country. Overseen by Legal Director Nick Cady, these law students receive real-world experience working for an environmental non-profit and are tasked with duties such as drafting complaints and preliminary injunctions, researching case law to support our claims, field checking timber sales and proposed pipelines, attending oral argument in state and federal court, and even hopping behind our outreach table at places like the bluegrass-heavy Northwest String Summit. Our legal interns greatly bolster our litigation efforts and help us notch lasting victories for the wildlands, waterways and species in Cascadia. Many have gone on to become leaders as our country’s next generation of public interest, environmental attorneys.

Our summer legal interns take a break from research and writing to represent Cascadia Wildlands at the Northwest String Summit Festival, July 2018.
