Josh Boissevain is a third-year law student at the University of Denver. Having grown up on a small farm on the Front Range, Josh reluctantly left the West to join the Peace Corps where he spent almost four years teaching English and journalism in Moldova. He took a small detour to work as a Prague-based journalist for a magazine covering the Post-Soviet Bloc for a few years before eventually heeding the call to come back to Colorado for good. Josh received his BS in News-Editorial Journalism from the University of Colorado-Boulder and is both a proud graduate of the Center of the American West’s certificate program and winner of the Thompson Writing Award for undergraduate nonfiction.
At DU, Josh is the Online Editor for the Water Law Review and vice president of the Natural Resources and Environmental Law Society. In connection to his legal studies, Josh has done law externships with the Colorado Attorney General, the Colorado Water Trust, and Denver Water; and he has done policy internships with the Colorado Water Conservation Board and Western Resource Advocates. Both professionally and recreationally Josh tends to gravitate to Colorado’s lakes and streams; and he hopes to help ensure they will still be there—in all their splendor—for future generations.
