O'Connor, Runckel and O'Malley LLP would like to announce our 2021 law school scholarship recipient, Margaret McCallister.
Margaret is an incoming 1L at Georgetown University Law Center. She just wrapped up a 2 year fellowship working as a Carbon Pricing Analytics Fellow at the Environmental Defense Fund (EDF). Through analysis, policy outreach, and capacity development on the design and implementation of market-based climate policies, Margaret focused on the fight against climate change. She earned her Bachelor of Science in Engineering from Princeton University’s Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering with certificates in Environmental Policy and Sustainable Energy. While at Princeton, Margaret engaged with environmentalism as a member of Princeton Student Climate Initiative and as the managing editor of the Princeton Legal Journal. She used the Legal Journal as a platform to conduct and share research in environmental policy. Incorporating her personal interest in law and innovation into her independent work, such as her senior thesis, has challenged Margaret to more fully explore the politics of environmentalism and to envision creative solutions and strategies for combating environmental injustice.
We look forward to seeing Margaret succeed in her upcoming years at Georgetown University Law Center.
