Ashley McDermottEmail:
Hometown: Boise, ID
College/Undergraduate Institution: Boise State University
I received a B.A. with a Political Science, Public Law & Political Philosophy Emphasis from Boise State University as well as a minor in Multi-Ethnic Studies.

Law School Interests: My emphasis at the University of Idaho College of Law is Natural Resources and Environmental Law. I am also receiving a concurrent degree, a Professional Science Masters in Ecohydrological Science and Management. I am currently a member of the Native American Law Society Association, an SBA Judiciary Justice & Honor Court Justice, Treasurer for the Environmental Law Society and Secretary for the Multi-Cultural Law Caucus.


I am an outdoors fan including skiing, camping, hiking, paddle boarding and rafting. I also enjoy cooking and yoga. Post law school and graduate school I would like to work with the interaction between the hydrological cycle and ecosystems, managing land and water resources and understanding the interface between human involvement and our aquatic ecosystems. My goal is to be employed with an organization or firm that I can further my skills in aiding in environmental conservation and management. I feel that if I can be the most knowledgeable in my field of study and practice than I can be more effective and beneficial not only to myself but also valuable and constructive to those I am working with and for.
