Introducing Earthrise’s 2017 Summer Clerks

Earthrise Law Center is excited to introduce the six law clerks that will be working at the Earthrise offices in Portland and in San Francisco this summer.

We here at Earthrise are feeling pretty excited and confident because we have hired 6 excellent Summer Clerks. Introducing the Earthrise Summer Clerks of 2017, in the photo above, from left to right, starting in the front row:

Sangye Ince-Johannsen is a rising 2L, filmmaker, and lover of animals and mountains. He produced a video on Zombie Permits on behalf of NEDC and Earthrise. After finals, he plans to backpack through the Trinity Alps before starting his summer clerkship in our San Francisco office with Staff Attorney Nina Robertson.

Will Enoch, a Washington native and devout Seahawks fan is a rising 3L who worked for the Environmental Law Review, the Student Bar Association and was Professor John Parry’s research assistant. Like Skylar, he also clerked for the Oregon Department of Justice and is excited for his upcoming Earthrise clerkship.

Another rising 3L, Hannah Lew is a familiar face to all of us as she was part of the Earthrise clinic last year and has already worked on several of our cases. She was also a Student Board Member and Law Clerk with NEDC. Hannah hopes to combine her law degree with her marine biology degree in order to protect wildlife. 

Skylar Sumner is a rising 3L who has spent the last year as a teaching fellow on top of his coursework at Lewis & Clark. Skylar has some trial experience under his belt already from his previous clerkship with the Oregon Department of Justice. He is looking forward to honing his skills as a environmental litigator while at Earthrise this summer.

Amanda Cooper is a rising 3L, who transferred from Golden Gate University School of Law where she was second in her class. Building on her enthusiasm for outdoor sports (backpacking, skiing and scuba diving), her time at Lewis & Clark Law School has cemented her desire to pursue environmental litigation. 

Giulia Rogers is a rising 3L who earned an honors grade in Lawyering and an award for Best Oral Advocate in her first year moot court competition. She has worked to hone her advocacy and legal writing skills by her participation in Ninth Circuit Review for the Environmental Law Review and can’t wait to put it to good use working at Earthrise this summer.
