The Environmental Law Clinic

The Environmental Law Clinic at Maryland Carey Law provides legal support, advice, and representation to a variety of non-profit organizations and community groups on environmental justice matters.  Approximately 10 student attorneys work 15 hours/week in the clinic as a full year course.  Past matters and projects in the Clinic have allowed student attorneys the opportunity to draft and argue briefs in administrative and judicial forums, prepare regulatory submissions, engage on complex legal research and analysis, write white papers, conduct community legal education, and provide legal counseling to client groups. The Clinic is also a national leader, regularly collaborating with other law clinics and maintaining the national directory of law school environmental law clinics.  In 2018, the Clinic won the ABA Student Program of the Year Award in 2018.  The Clinic is under the direction of Associate Professor, Seema Kakade.
