EPA. He is on the board of directors of the Environmental Law Institute and the Center for Applied Environmental Law and Policy; a fellow and regent of the American College of Environmental Lawyers; and on the advisory board and council of the Institute for Policy Integrity at New York University (NYU) School of Law and the State Energy and Environmental Law Center at NYU School of Law.
