 Chris DunskyDuring Chris Dunsky’s time as chair of the Journal Committee, the environmental legal landscape underwent many important developments and Chris was certain to capture them all. Under Chris’s editorship, the Journal included pieces on Burlington Northern, the Asian Carp Invasion, Water Affordability in Detroit, and key updates to Michigan’s Public Acts. Chris also authored numerous pieces in the Journal over the years including a fascinating article on wild hAmanda Urbanogs as a prohibited species in Michigan.

After serving as the editor of the Journal for more than five years, Chris has relinquished his title and the Council has selected Amanda Urban as his successor. Amanda brings to the Journal her experience as an editor of the Michigan Environmental and Administrative Law Journal during her time as a student at the University of Michigan Law School. Following graduation she worked as a legal fellow at the International Institute of Law and the Environment in Madrid, Spain. Currently, she serves as a law clerk in the Eastern District of Michigan, but she looks forward to practicing in environmental, natural resources, and energy law upon completion of her clerkship. In the meantime, she hopes to build upon Chris’s work and continue the Journal’s tradition for excellence.
