Andrew Bennett is a 1L Pledge Alumni and a May 2017 graduate of the University of Denver Sturm College of Law. He was matched with Xcel Energy during the Pledge his 1L year, and worked there throughout the remainder of his law school career. His responsibilities at Xcel Energy included researching legal issues for the entire legal department, drafting memos, liaising between outside counsel and company employees, assisting in negotiations, becoming an expert on streetlights and a founding member of the Streetlight Club, writing sections of briefs submitted before the Colorado Public Utilities Commission, supporting the claims team by drafting letters, performing comparative surveys of state laws where Xcel Energy is located, and making coffee, that is, until the Keurig machine (robot overlord?) took that job away from him.
Andrew is excited to be waiting for his Colorado bar results. So. Excited.
