Environmental Law Clinic

The Clinic is a one semester commitment, during which students earn 6 credits, and work approximately 21 hours per week. The Clinic exposes students to the complexity of environmental law, with a focus on pollution, land use, and environmental justice. The Clinic represents and works with non-profit organizations and community level organizations. The Clinic is an appropriate choice for students interested in administrative law, legislation, and broad level policy. Occasionally, the clinic works on litigation matters, when environmental administrative law decisions, are reviewed by courts. Depending on the Clinic’s docket, student attorneys may prepare regulatory and pollution permits comments, participate in client counseling meetings, draft advocacy letters to government agencies, provide research support to co-counsel in litigation, and write memos on complex environmental issues.
