This week, Matt Arnold started as a Law Fellow with Eubanks & Associates, LLC. We are very excited for him to join our team! More info about Matt:
Before joining the firm, Matt clerked for the Honorable Elizabeth C. Wingo at the Superior Court for the District of Columbia. Matt has also previously served as a law clerk for both Defenders of Wildlife and Meyer Glitzenstein & Eubanks LLP.
Matt received his J.D., cum laude, from Vermont Law School in 2018. During law school, Matt served as the Managing Editor of the Vermont Law Review, which selected his Note, What’s Good for the Goose May not be Good for the Gander: A Bird’s Eye View of the Emerging Incidental Take Permit Program Under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act, 42 Vt. L. Rev. 152 (2018), as the 2017 Vermont Law Review Note Competition Winner. In law school, Matt was also an active member of Vermont Law School’s Moot Court Advisory Board. During the school’s 2017 Debevoise Moot Court Competition, Matt was awarded “Best Respondents’ Brief.” In 2018, Matt was selected to represent Vermont Law School in the National Environmental Law Moot Court Competition at Pace Law School.
Prior to attending law school, Matt earned a bachelor’s degree in biology from the College of Charleston, where he focused on microbiology and saltwater algae. After graduating from college, Matt worked as a Naturalist in the salt marshes of South Carolina, where he studied the health of native avian populations and shared his admiration of wildlife with visitors to the Lowcountry. Ultimately, the encroachment of a resort development into pristine dune habitat compelled Matt to attend law school to defend the wild places he cherishes.
In his spare time, Matt is an avid birder with a particular admiration for sparrows and shorebirds. Matt is also a public lands geek who enjoys hiking (slowly, while gazing at the underbrush through his binoculars) with his wife, Sabrina, and their dog, Forrest.
