Two law students receive stipends from the natural resources & environmental law program for summer work

Jackie Munro and Kate Tara

UNM’s Natural Resources and Environmental Law Program has awarded stipends to two students who will work this summer in otherwise-unpaid positions in environmental law.  The students and their summer 2022 employers are Jackie Munro (Class of ’24) with the New Mexico Environmental Law Center, and Kate Tara (Class of ’23) with American Rivers.

The NREL Program makes these awards through a competitive application process, supporting summer work with a government agency or nonprofit organization in the field of natural resources and environmental law. This year’s summer stipends are funded in part by a generous donation from the Natural Resources, Energy and Environmental Law (NREEL) Section of the New Mexico State Bar.
