Why it is relevant for ...

[ Academia ] as a Clinic : For students interested in environmental law, this clinic is an obvious choice. You will get experience in a range of litigation, administrative practice, and policy work involving substantive environmental law issues. Be sure to also consider other clinics: Whether or not a clinic focuses on the substantive law of your specific career orientation, you can be confident that every clinic will provide skills-based training that is relevant and transferable to other areas of practice. Equally important, the mentoring offered to students by clinical program directors provides a valuable opportunity to develop that key lawyering competence: professional judgment. The following clinics are particularly useful for those planning to work in the policy arena or practice with regulatory agencies, as they develop a policy focus and administrative advocacy skills useful for this career direction in any substantive area: Criminal Prosecution Clinic, Criminal Defense Clinic, Cyberlaw Clinic, Community Law Clinic, Education Law Clinic, Supreme Court Clinic

General course Description:

Students enrolled in the Clinic provide legal assistance to national, regional and grassroots non-profit organizations on a variety of environmental issues, with a focus on complex natural resource conservation and biodiversity matters at the interface of law, science and policy. Working under the direct supervision of practicing environmental attorneys, Clinic students help screen new matters and potential clients; formulate strategies; research and develop factual and legal issues; and prosecute administrative and litigation proceedings. During the term, students may meet with clients, opposing counsel or agency decision makers; review administrative records; develop expert testimony; draft comment letters, petitions, pleading or briefs; and/or attend and participate in administrative and court hearings. In regular one-on-one meetings with supervising faculty, there is a heavy emphasis on polishing persuasive writing and oral advocacy skills. In addition, students participate in a weekly seminar where we examine strategic, ethical and substantive issues arising out of the Clinic's work. No prior substantive experience or background in the environmental/natural resource field is necessary, but an interest in learning about these areas of the law is important. Beginning with the 2009-2010 academic year, each of the Law School's clinical courses is being offered on a full-time basis for 12 credits.

Course Style: A Clinic provides hands-on practical legal experience under the supervision of a faculty member and complemented by a seminar.

Course Frequency: Offered twice a year
