CAREER SERIES RECAP

 

Colin Kelly - Senior Staff Attorney - Orange County Coastkeeper

  • Grew up surfing and wanted to do something about "Urban Slobber" polluting his waves
  • Southern California Native; attended undergrad at University of Oregon; Whittier Law School
  • He shared, "an undergraduate degree in something that interests you is more useful for getting into law school and practicing law than picking a "Pre-Law" major...No major is more "Pre-Law" than another, so discover a passion if you want to become a lawyer."
  • He goes to work in shorts and flip flops!
Some lawyers get to work in flip flops!
