Attorney — Quite simply, attorneys practice law. What that means depends upon the legal (or non-legal) work environment that one ultimately chooses, along with the area(s) of law in which one practices. The opportunities are endless given the various work environments and the numerous areas of law in which one can specialize. For instance, lawyers practice within private law practices; public interest groups; governmental agencies (federal, state, tribal or local); courts; business and industry (e.g., insurance companies, financial institutions, corporations, hospitals, public relation firms, political campaigns, labor unions, and trade associations); academics (as a law professor, law librarian or administrator); or in various non-legal careers such as the media, law enforcement, business, public relations, foreign service, or politics. In addition, within many of these varied work environments, there are numerous areas of law in which one may specialize.

Suttons Bay, Michigan

Nick conducted a fish population survey in the rapids of the St. Mary's river, just east of the International Bridge that connects the US and Canada. He determined fish timing and their use of the rapids by collecting samples throughout the summer and fall of 2009, using a screw trap on loan from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Steimel found that many different species are not only in the rapids, but spawn there as well. His research helps determine the diversity of fish as well when their use of spawning habitat is at its highest in that section of the river.
