Burg Simpson Attorney Ron Sandgrund’s Consumer Rights and Environmental Law Efforts Highlighted
Recently, Burg Simpson attorney Ron Sandgrund was recognized in the University of Colorado Law School’s alumni magazine, Amicus. Mr. Sandgrund’s efforts were acknowledged in creating an Environmental Law Fellowship to encourage students to consider environmental advocacy as a career option. “I know law firms pay much more than environmental nonprofits,” Sandgrund said, “but my hope was that if Colorado Law provided a financial incentive for students to take a summer position with an environmental group, it might cause some talented students to consider using their law degrees in public service when they graduate.”
Additionally, Mr. Sandgrund’s contributions were recognized in the establishment of a Consumer Rights Award, regularly given to faculty including this year’s recipient Scott Peppet.
