ASSISTANT ATTORNEY GENERAL FOR ENVIRONMENT AND NATURAL RESOURCES
Nominated by President Joe Biden
Todd Kim is a nationally renowned expert in climate law and policy with decades of experience under his belt. If confirmed as Assistant Attorney General in the Department of Justice’s Environment and Natural Resources Division, he will join a team of qualified visionaries working to enforce U.S. law to protect communities, public health, and the climate.
Kim served for more than seven years as an appellate attorney with the Environment and Natural Resources Division of the U.S. Department of Justice, before being appointed the first Solicitor General of the District of Columbia, a position he held for more than 11 years. Kim’s deep experience with environmental law positions him well to champion and enforce the laws on the books and to use this position at the Department of Justice to protect the people from dangerous polluters, pollution, and the climate crisis.
At the Environment and Natural Resources Division of the DOJ, Todd Kim will be key in implementing President Joe Biden’s bold climate agenda to Build Back Better and transition to clean energy to provide communities with well-paying jobs, cleaner water, and cleaner air. Kim will also be responsible for the department handling tribal law and eminent domain issues, pivotal responsibilities centered on justice, equity, and inclusion.
