Drew graduated magna cum laude from the University of Maine School of Law in 2023 with a Juris Doctor and a Certificate in Environmental & Oceans Law. While at Maine Law, Drew was a member of the Environmental & Energy Law Society (EELS) and served as a Managing Editor of the Maine Law Review. In his third year, his law review article about the viability of nuisance claims against grid-scale wind energy facilities in Maine was selected for publication.
