Not everyone is lucky enough to discover a passion in life and pursue it. Jessica Chiavara ’12 was able to do both. During her undergraduate studies at the University of California, Berkeley, Chiavara discovered and began to pursue her interest in both law and environmental protection. Three years at the Maurice A. Deane School of Law at Hofstra University validated her passion for these fields, and she is now an associate at an environmental consulting firm.
As an incoming law student, Heather Drayton ’08 knew she wanted to study environmental law.
“I chose Hofstra Law because it is an exciting and challenging place,” says Drayton. “And I made sure to take advantage of every environmental law-related opportunity available during my time there.”
