Come speak with Faculty Director Andrew Mergen, Clinical Instructor Sommer Engels, Clinical Fellow Rosa Hayes, and current Clinic students about the fantastic and diverse opportunities to expand your lawyering skills and substantive knowledge of environmental law through work on a variety of litigation, administrative, legislative, and policy projects. Clinic projects focus on environment, energy, public health, and social justice issues. The Clinic works with scientists, medical professionals, nonprofit and public interest organizations, and government clients on environmental and energy issues at the federal, state, and local level. Depending on the project, students may undertake litigation and advocacy work by writing briefs and comment letters, preparing guidance documents and manuals for non-lawyers, conducting research, developing strategy, reviewing proposed legislation, and preparing policy papers. Students present their work to clients, stakeholders, and decision-makers, including federal, state, and local officials. Some students work off-campus with government agencies and nonprofit organizations, while others work on-campus on projects and case work under the supervision of the Clinic’s faculty and staff. Come learn more!

Lunch and refreshments will be available!
