William Rose
Summer Legal Intern

William Rose is a rising second-year JD candidate at NYU School of Law primarily interested in environmental and climate change law. He is co-chair of NYU’s Environmental Law Society and an incoming staff editor at the school’s Environmental Law Journal. At CHRGJ, he is assisting Professor Rodríguez-Garavito’s research on the development of human rights-based climate change litigation worldwide, with a particular eye towards potential doctrinal advances. 

William holds a master’s degree in History from the University of Edinburgh, where he wrote his dissertation on the elements of absurdism in Arendt’s studies of European totalitarianism. He also took his undergraduate degree at Edinburgh, graduating with First Class Honors in History and Politics. On returning from Scotland, he worked for a few years in education, first in his native Connecticut and then in his adoptive home of New York, before resolving to pursue law in the hopes of advocating for the planet and for those most affected by its degradation.
