McElroy, Miller, Sullivan, Weber L.L.P.

Fall 2020

Position: Legal Intern
Student: Sustainability Studies Senior

Student Name: Gabriel Escalante

I work for the McElroy, Sullivan, Miller and Weber Law Firm. They have about 15 lawyers and several paralegals; their primary areas of practice are environmental, energy and land rights law. They work with many of the state’s commissions to work their cases, including the Railroad commission and the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality. Both of these institutions are very involved with the state’s policy and statutes regarding the environment and energy. I found the internship through a friend of mine who has a connection through one of the attorneys. I was able to talk to him, and I ended up getting an interview. My main role at the law firm is to assist the lawyers while they are setting up their cases. This involves driving to various firms or commissions and retrieving or delivering things, like dockets and evidence. I also do many things around the office, my favorite task is going through our library to find relevant cases or examples. The more hands on aspects of my job are definitely my favorite.
