Wayne State environmental law professor is gaining recognition


Nick Schroeck, executive director of the Great Lakes Environmental Law Center and a 2007 graduate of Wayne State University Law School, is profiled in this article. In May, he received the Recent Alumni Award from the WSU Alumni Association for outstanding professional achievement, community contributions and service to the university. Schroeck frequently appears in the media as an expert on high-profile environmental law issues, including the ongoing dispute over how to keep Asian carp out of the Great Lakes and the controversy over oil and gas extraction by hydraulic fracturing or “fracking.”
