Climate Law Fellow (2015-17)
Phone: (212) 854-0106
Justin Gundlach joined the Sabin Center in September 2015 as a Climate Law Fellow. Justin’s work at the Sabin Center focuses on using existing legal and regulatory tools to promote efforts on the part of governments and private actors to adapt to a changing climate and to mitigate the effects of climate change.
Before starting at the Center, Justin worked as a staff attorney and clinical teaching fellow with the environmental section of Georgetown law school’s Institute for Public Representation. That fellowship followed several years of private practice, which in turn followed an internship in the Energy & Climate Change Section of the White House Council on Environmental Quality.
Justin received an LL.M. from Georgetown with distinction in 2015 and a J.D., cum laude, from NYU School of Law in 2010. He is licensed to practice law in New York.
