Carrie Jenks will join the Harvard Law School Environmental and Energy Law Program in May as Executive Director. Jenks has over fifteen years of legal and policy expertise in climate and environmental law, working with the private sector, non-profit organizations, and policymakers to identify common ground, build strategic alliances, and collaboratively advance policy solutions that are legally durable.
Jenks comes to EELP from M.J. Bradley & Associates (MJB&A). In her role as Director of the Clean Energy Group, the Energy Strategy Coalition, and the Permitting and Infrastructure Coalition, she worked with power sector companies to advance effective environmental and clean energy policy.
Jenks’s experience convening both non-profit and corporate clients will be instrumental to EELP’s work with public and private stakeholders to advance climate and clean energy solutions, promote sustainability, and improve environmental protection and public health.
Prior to her work with MJB&A, Jenks was an associate in the environmental groups at Willkie Farr & Gallagher LLP in Washington, DC and at Goodwin Procter LLP in Boston, MA.
Jenks will work with Professors Jody Freeman and Richard Lazarus, the EELP team, and the program’s student researchers to pursue EELP’s mission.
