Careers in Environmental Law Speaker Series
The Environmental Law and Policy Program offers a speaker series focusing on careers in environmental law. This speaker series brings environmental practitioners from a wide range of backgrounds to Michigan Law for lunchtime presentations that explore the myriad ways that environmental lawyers contribute to environmental protection and natural resource conservation efforts. The speaker series includes public service and public interest attorneys, as well as attorneys in private practice and within corporations. The practice areas encompass new areas of environmental law, such as alternative energy and carbon reduction strategies, as well as more traditional compliance counseling and enforcement practices.

Stacey Geis, managing attorney of the California regional office of Earthjustice, will speak about both her career and environmental crimes prosecution.
Ms. Geis joined Earthjustice in 2014 after having spent over ten years prosecuting environmental crimes at the U.S. Attorney’s Office in San Francisco. While there, she criminally prosecuted pollution, fisheries, and wildlife cases, including the criminal prosecution of Walmart in 2013 for nationwide illegal hazardous waste practices and the criminal prosecution of the shipping company and the bar pilot who caused the 2007 Cosco Busan oil spill in the San Francisco Bay. Before that, she was the senior prosecutor for the California Circuit Prosecutor Project and prosecuted over 100 criminal and civil environmental enforcement cases around the State. For her work, she has been named one of California’s Top 100 Lawyers by the Daily Journal and, in 2014, received the California Lawyer Attorney of the Year award.
Ms. Geis is a graduate of Brown University and the University of Virginia School of Law. Before starting her career as a litigator, Stacey clerked for the Honorable Samuel Conti of the Northern District of California.
