This summer, second-year Hofstra Law student Adam Preller is interning at the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) in its prestigious and highly competitive internship program.
Preller, the William R. Ginsberg Memorial Fellow in Environmental Law at Hofstra Law, is working with the New York and Energy teams in NRDC’s New York City office.
“I am excited to learn how public interest lawyers can help shape domestic energy and environmental policy,” said Preller. “Through this internship, I hope to acquire some of the legal skills necessary to promote greater sustainability in our society.”
At NRDC, Preller is conducting legal research and writing in support of various policy advocacy projects, such as promoting clean energy/energy efficiency and protecting New York state’s natural resources.
NRDC is the nation’s most effective environmental action group, combining the grassroots power of 1.4 million members and online activists with the courtroom clout and expertise of more than 350 lawyers, scientists and other professionals. The New York Times calls NRDC “one of the nation’s most powerful environmental groups.”
