    Won the Beveridge & Diamond Constitutional Environmental Law Writing Competition organized by the Environmental Law Institute and the National Association of Environmental Law Studies. Reschly is the first Lewis & Clark law student to win this prestigious competition, which recognizes student writing that best advances the state of scholarship and informs the debate on a current topic in constitutional environmental law. His paper, “Pesticides, Water Quality, and the Public Trust Doctrine,” analyzes how courts could use the public trust doctrine to regulate certain forms of water pollution and argues that the current regulatory framework governing pesticides is insufficient to protect human health, the environment, wildlife, or water quality.
