Lora L. Nordtvedt Reeve (’12) has been accepted into the research doctoral program in international ocean law at the Australian National Centre for Ocean Resources & Security (ANCORS) in the University of Wollongong, Wollongong, Australia. Her project is entitled “Acoustic Impact in the High Seas: Developing Global Governance to Manage Anthropogenic Underwater Noise In Areas Beyond National Jurisdiction.” Lora will begin her research in March 2015 and anticipates the award of her PhD in 2018. While she was a student at Richardson School of Law in addition to her JD, Lora completed her Graduate Ocean Policy Certificate, Environmental Law Certificate, and Master of Science in Zoology with a research emphasis in marine mammal acoustics and foraging ecology. She also served as Research Assistant to Professors Jon Van Dyke and Sherry Broder, was awarded an Elizabeth Sharpe Fellowship at the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and traveled to Warsaw, Poland for an externship with the International Union for Conservation (IUCN) High Seas Task Force. Lora’s only advice to environmental law students: Find someone who is doing exactly what you want to do and offer to work for them pro bono.
