The inaugural Tulane Center for Environmental Law $1000 prize for an outstanding comment submitted by a student to the Tulane Environmental Law Journal is going to Daniel Stein, a rising 3L student. Stein's comment “Protecting the Artic Environment from Northwest Passage Shipping in an Era of Climate Change” was selected by a distinguished five-judge panel. In addition to receiving the cash prize, Stein's comment will be published in the current issue of the Tulane Environmental Law Journal.
Winning the TCEL prize capped an eventful year for Stein. In addition to writing his comment, he was the executive chair of the acclaimed, student-run 24th Annual Tulane Environmental Law & Policy Summit, which was held at the Law School this past March. He is also a junior member of the Tulane Environmental Law Journal, and secretary of the Tulane American Constitution Society.
