Congratulations to Patrick Flynn as the winner of our 2022 law school scholarship contest! Below, you can read Patrick’s bio and what has motivated him to pursue a career in law.
“I am a writer and an organizer, motivated by the power of the law to advance justice. My desire to be a lawyer is informed, first and foremost, by a growing sense of urgency and anxiety about climate change. Something I see on a daily basis in my work as a writer and a community organizer is that those who suffer disproportionately from the impacts of environmental degradation–communities of color, low-income communities, indigenous communities–are also the people with the least access to legal redress. I hope to spend my career working alongside communities to change this state of affairs, leveraging litigation as a tool of justice and sustainability.”
