Environmental Conservation Outreach



Projects for 2020/2021 are still being finalized, but ECO will likely engage in similar work as in previous semesters. In the past, ECO has developed administrative comments on federal oil and gas leasing and the adequacy of state and local regulatory mechanisms for threatened species. ECO has also worked on policy memoranda concerning environmental justice issues in California and the public health impacts of oil and gas development. There will be opportunities for students to indicate project preference based on their topic of interest.  

Regardless of the topic, students will engage in research related to policy initiatives, cases, and existing regulations. Depending on the project’s needs, students will then create work product in the form of Bluebooked memoranda, research spreadsheets, policy recommendations, and/or briefs. ECO will be held remotely for the Fall 2020 semester, with all projects and meetings occurring over Zoom. 

Supervision: Students will perform their work under the supervision of Berkeley Law faculty.  

Time Commitment: 20-25 hours per semester
