KRC Staff News Posted: May 15, 2007
This summer, KRC is pleased to have an intern and two law clerks working with us.
Emily Criscillis, a U of L graduate who will be entering Chase School of Law in Northern Kentucky this fall, is interning with KRC and has been working on researching the many issues regarding the coding and recyclability of multi-layer, multi-resin plastic containers.
Randy Strobo, a rising 3L at the Brandeis School of Law, and Liz Edmondson, who will graduate from the Brandeis School in December, are clerking at KRC this summer.
Randy was one of 10 students who traveled to New Orleans during Spring Break in order to assist the New Orleans Legal Assistance office in providing legal assistance to displaced residents. Randy successfully helped a resident who had been displaced, housed at the Superdome and airlifted to Connecticut, and from whom FEMA had demanded repayment of assistance due to his inability to document his former residency.
Liz Edmondson will be a fourth year evening division law student at the University of Louisville Brandeis School of Law and will graduate in December of 2007. She served as the Senior Notes Editor on Volume 45 of the Brandeis Law Journal where her note recommending an amendment to the Clean Air Act was published and awarded Best Note Honorable Mention. Liz also works as a research assistant for Professor Tony Arnold and examines issues relating to land use and environmental law. She is currently working with Professor Arnold on a community land use assessment where she and two other law students will work with Central High School students to address health equity and environmental justice concerns in a West Louisville neighborhood. Last year Liz tutored first year Property students as part of the law school?s Academic Support Program and she currently volunteers with Habitat for Humanity doing historic land use research through the law schools Public Service Program.
KRC is proud to have these three individuals with us this summer.
