BOSTON—In January, NELC added attorney Maggie Nivison to our litigation team.

Maggie joined NELC after completing a fellowship with the American Civil Liberties Union of Massachusetts. She graduated cum laude from Georgetown University Law Center in 2017. While she was in school, Maggie worked with the Environmental Law & Justice Clinic at the Institute for Public Representation, where she represented community members fighting to save a public park in their hometown.

Maggie is excited to work at NELC because it has a proven record of creating positive change.

“As a child growing up in the Pacific Northwest, I had no idea what a privilege it was to breathe fresh, clean air,” Maggie said. “Joining NELC is my opportunity to help extend that privilege to everyone.”

She is eager to learn from the skilled litigators at NELC and to be a part of their ongoing efforts to stop polluters in their tracks.
