Clinic Practice: Environmental Advocacy

This course is being offered as a pilot course to meet increasing requests by students for an environmental law clinic. It is designed to provide a multidisciplinary clinical experience, emphasizing a broad based view of legal strategy and environmental solutions. The clinic will be led by Nancy Loeb, a Chicago-based attorney with extensive litigation and environmental law experience. Students will participate in cases and projects undertaken by the Environmental Law and Policy Center (ELPC). Student supervision will be provided both by ELPC staff attorneys and Nancy Loeb. The clinic will include a weekly seminar led by Nancy Loeb with participation of ELPC staff. The Environmental Advocacy Clinic will train students to pursue environmental solutions through strategies that incorporate a broad range of legal and advocacy options. Students will participate in ELPC-led environmental litigation, administrative proceedings, legislative and rulemaking proceedings, and public advocacy and media activities, working with ELPC¿s attorneys, scientists, economists and legislative experts. Both through their participation in ELPC projects and the seminar, students will develop skills in assessing environmental issues and developing strategies, often using multiple legal and advocacy strategies, to address a particular issue. The clinic will also focus on development of lawyering and advocacy skills.
