President Donald Trump has announced his decision to name Daniel Jorjani as Solicitor of the Department of Interior, a move supported by Safari Club International.
Jorjani has served as Principal Deputy Solicitor of the Department of Interior since May of 2017. In that position, Jorjani manages more than 330 attorneys attached to every major office in the Department. He serves as DOI’s Regulatory Policy Officer and as a member of the Executive Resources Board.
Jorjani brings a wealth of knowledge and hands-on experience to the job, having held several positions at the department under President George W. Bush and accumulating significant corporate, nonprofit and legal expertise.
Jorjani received his undergraduate degree from Vanderbilt University, a Master’s degree from Columbia University and his Juris Doctor from Cornell Law School.
“The President is to be commended for this nomination,” said Acting Secretary David Bernhardt in an Interior Department news release. “As someone who has served as Solicitor of the Interior, I know Principal Deputy Solicitor Jorjani will be an exceptional Solicitor. Throughout his extensive tenure at the Department of the Interior, Dan has distinguished himself with his integrity, an incredible work ethic, humility, and dedication to Interior’s mission.”
“Safari Club congratulates Daniel Jorjani on this well-deserved appointment,” said SCI President Paul Babaz. “SCI is confident that with Daniel Jorjani officially in the lead position of the Department of the Interior’s legal division, the department will continue engaging in sound, well-supported decision-making.”
