Connie Sue Martin Joins Board of Confluence Project
Connie Sue Martin, a shareholder in the Seattle office of Schwabe, Williamson & Wyatt, recently joined the board of Confluence Project.
Confluence Project is a collaborative effort of Pacific Northwest tribes, renowned artist Maya Lin, civic groups from Washington and Oregon and other artists, architects and landscape designers. The project stretches more than 300 miles from where the Columbia River flows into the Pacific Ocean, to Clarkson, Washington. Each of its seven sites features an art installation that interprets the area's ecology and history, encouraging visitors to reflect on how the surroundings have changed over time.
Martin has fifteen years of environmental law experience and focuses her practice on environmental and natural resource litigation. She has special expertise in matters involving Indian tribes, especially resource protection and natural resource damage claims, and is regarded as one of the leading practitioners of environmental Indian law in Washington State.
Martin speaks frequently on environmental and Indian law issues and is a frequent guest lecturer at the University of Washington School of Law and Seattle University School of Law. She graduated with a juris doctor degree from Seattle University School of Law.
