Environmental Conservation Outreach

Currently, ECO is planning to develop comments on proposals to lease federal lands for oil and gas development, and proposed revisions to California’s state regulations for open pit mining. ECO is also working to update a database tracking California county-level protections for oak woodlands. Working with faculty advisers, students will conduct legal research and draft legal memoranda and administrative comments to address the issue in both general and specific terms.

Time Commitment: We expect students to commit 25-30 hours per semester. This will include 3 to 4 general meetings and 2 to 3 small group meetings per semester as well as substantive work on assignments.

Supervision: Students will perform their work under the supervision of Eric Biber, Professor of Law and Director of Environmental and Energy Law Programs at UC Berkeley, School of Law. 

For more information, please contact the student leaders at Eco.berkeley.law@gmail.com.
