Breaking into a public interest practice area without much prior experience can be daunting, and in many cases, you might not know where to begin. Hear from Wasserstein Fellow Kenta Tsuda as he discusses his own career journey to becoming an environmental litigator and things you may want to consider early on in your careers.
Sponsored by OPIA and the Environmental Law Society.
