Stacie Dowell has been working for the Trinity River Authority (TRA) since 2012, when she was hired as a paralegal. Having graduated from Texas A&M School of Law in 2017, she is now an associate in that legal department. In her role, she encounters a wide variety of legal issues spanning contract, employment, business, property, and water law.
August 29-30, a select group of environmental scholars from across the country was invited to a workshop at Texas A&M University School of Law(TAMU Law) to present their ongoing environmental law-related research. This first-ever Environmental Schmooze (or EnviroSchmooze) focused on climate change issues and challenges. The purpose of the workshop was to allow participants to engage in meaningful conversations and analyses in a safe environment on critical legal and policy issues related to the papers. As a result, presentations were limited to 10 minutes and substantial time was set aside for the discussions.
