Clinic Practice: Environmental Advocacy

This course is designed to provide a multidisciplinary clinical experience, emphasizing a broad based view of legal strategy, skills development and environmental solutions. Clinic cases generally focus on environmental justice, energy and sustainability, and natural resources protection, including opportunities to work on international sustainability projects. The clinic often partners with leading environmental organizations, including the Environmental Law & Policy Center, Natural Resources Defense Council, and the World Wildlife Fund. The clinic includes a weekly seminar during which students interact with clients and practicing attorneys across a broad spectrum of environmental law practice. The Environmental Advocacy Clinic teaches students to pursue environmental solutions through strategies that incorporate a broad range of legal and advocacy options. Students may participate in environmental litigation, administrative proceedings, legislative and rulemaking proceedings, public advocacy and media activities and work with attorneys, scientists, economists and legislative experts. Through their participation in environmental cases, projects and weekly seminars, students will develop skills in assessing environmental issues and developing strategies, often using multiple legal and advocacy strategies, to address environmental issues. The clinic also focuses on development of lawyering and advocacy skills.
