2019-2021 Fellow

Turner Clinic
Geoff Toy 16L is a former Turner Clinic student and Emory Law alum. Since law school, Geoff has been working in civil litigation with a medium-size Atlanta firm.

As a clinic student, Geoff worked on issues involving the National Environmental Policy Act, the Nuclear Waste Policy Act, and water issues in Georgia. While at Emory, Geoff served as Executive Articles Editor of the Emory International Law Review and externed in the environmental law department at Coca-Cola. At Coca-Cola, Geoff prepared training materials for the company detailing hazardous waste release reporting standards under state and federal laws, including the Toxic Substances Control Act, and worked on CERCLA litigation.  

The Turner Clinic fellowship helped me launch my public interest environmental law career. In the Clinic, I was able to develop my legal skills, learn about a host of environmental issues, and establish relationships with local and national environmental groups. When I left the Clinic, I felt armed with everything I needed to succeed at Southern Environmental Law Center.
