Coronavirus Information and Update: Spring 2021 Plans

Courtney Johnson (née Watts) ’07

I am driven in my work to make our environmental laws work for everyone. We are lucky to have laws that protect our air, water, and land. But there are serious imbalances in access to justice and to the resources it takes to succeed in our legal system. By supporting those who are the most impacted yet underrepresented by government decisions, we can start to correct these inequities. Sometimes you need a good lawyer to stand up for you. Often, you need support and tools to stand up for yourself. I am hopeful that my work helps to balance the scales of justice, ensures the integrity of government process, and helps our clients achieve their vision for a healthy environment.
