This summer, NACLE students had the opportunity to work at the CEC headquarters in Montreal, Canada. Intern and 2016 NACLE Scholar Rebeca Moreno Coca credits the connections gained through NACLE workshops for her successful experience.
“My experience with NACLE went further than the Monterrey Workshop 2016,” Coca said. “There I had the opportunity to meet people committed to the exchange of ideas and talent in North America. In particular, I was able to meet members of the Commission for Environmental Cooperation at the Workshop, including Robert Moyer, the Submissions on Enforcement Matters (SEM) Unit Director, and Paolo Solano, CEC’s Legal Officer. They helped me get a full understanding of the CEC’s objectives and the SEM process. I sincerely appreciate their willingness to hear my interest and provide the opportunity to work in their Short-Term Educational Program (STEP).”
For CEC summer intern Julian Dominguez, NACLE Senior Coordinator, the internship would not have been possible without the help of NACLE and the late NACLE Director and Professor Steven Zamora.
“NACLE the organization was absolutely instrumental in securing my placement at the Commission for Environmental Cooperation this summer,” Dominguez said. “Being involved with NACLE and attending the 2016 Monterrey Workshop and Paper Competition helped me narrow my interests in the legal industry, secure a placement at the CEC, and most importantly discover a whole new legal field. It is because of my involvement with NACLE that I now have strong passions to work on environmental and international issues.”
