The Environmental Law Clinic Explores Environmental Justice Issues

Throughout the past several years, the Environmental Law Clinic has been exploring policy solutions to environmental justice issues that arose during the Clinic's representation of some of its clients.

In preparing for Clinic students to continue that work in the coming semesters, the Clinic invited Professor Kathleen Hoke, Director of the Legal Resource Center for Public Health Policy at the University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law, to speak to students about the legislative process in Maryland.

Professor Hoke shared her experiences and her tips for supporting or opposing legislation, including for preparing for committee hearings and drafting written support. The lecture provided students with valuable insight into how the Clinic might successfully continue its policy work by assisting clients with legislative projects.
