Emma Bruden, 3L, receives scholarship for commitment to natural resources law

June 26, 2015

Emma Bruden, a third year law student at Lewis & Clark law school, received a generous tuition scholarship through the Rocky Mountain Mineral Law Foundation (RMMLF) in recognition of her commitment to natural resources law and her potential to make significant contributions to the field. Emma is particularly interested in public lands and water law, and she has been actively involved with these issues during her time at Lewis & Clark. She started volunteering with the Northwest Environmental Defense Council as a first year law student, and later joined the Coalition for Alternative Transportation, the Earthrise litigation clinic, and the Environmental Law Review.

Emma is a graduate of the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh where she majored in Political Science and Spanish. Her study abroad semester in Peru opened her eyes to environmental degradation and inspired her to find ways to use politics and the law to address the challenges facing the planet. When she isn’t studying or working Emma likes to bike around Portland with CATs and rode to Eugene for this year’s Public Interest Environmental Law Conference.

Congratulations to Emma for winning the RMMLF scholarship. We know she will put her law degree to good use by helping to preserve our natural resources.
