2010s Philosophy Alumni Updates

We'd love to hear from you. Please send us your news.

Troy Albert '11: Much time has passed since I last walked the halls of Blair. In fact–and not by my choosing–I haven't yet made it back since I locked up my apartment on Cary Street and drove west for Portland, Oregon. My fiancee, Michelle Tillman, Class of 2012, cherish memories of our alma mater, and endeavor to visit in the near future.

I'm completing my final semester of law school at Lewis & Clark, where I study environmental law. Since 2013, I've been working on animal and environmental law-related issues; of which, in particular, have emphasized the regulatory and normative dimensions of the global wildlife trade. Recently, I wrote "The Elephant in the Room," an article on the rules governing the international ivory trade. That article will be published in the 34th edition of the Journal of Environmental Law and Litigation of University of Oregon School of Law. Currently, I clerk for the Center for Food Safety under the mentorship of senior-attorney, George Kimbrell,  also a W&M alum, on matters of agricultural law and sustainability.

I am very pleased to hear from you and to have been given the opportunity to expound upon the superior education I received from you and other esteemed Philosophy Department faculty members alike. Although I won't be able to physically attend the event in October, you can be sure that I will be there in spirit.
