Boalt Student Groups Hold Environmental Justice Symposium
Boalt's Environmental Law Society co-sponsored a spring 2005 symposium, Transforming our Communities: an Inclusive Approach to Environmental Justice. The environmental justice community-including lawyers, policy makers, community organizers, scholars, scientists, artists and youth activists-convened to learn about one another's work, strengthen existing relationships and re-energize for future action. The symposium informed Boalt and the broader community about opportunities for community-based law practice and raised awareness about the environmental justice movement.
The conference took place on Friday, March 11.3/11/2005
