The Environmental Law Writing Seminar is designed for students who are interested in environmental, land use or natural resources law who want to contribute to legal scholarship. It offers an opportunity to produce comments and case notes about important opinions and other developments in the field for inclusion in the Ecology Law Quarterly’s renowned Annual Review of Environmental and Natural Resource Law. Working with Professor Farber, Mr. Infelise and teaching assistants during the fall semester, and with the ELQ editorial staff during the spring semester, students will improve their writing and research skills while helping to shape the development of the law. LLM students will have the opportunity to write a comment on an important topic related to energy or environmental law, with the potential for publication in Ecology Law Quarterly’s online journal, Currents. Students interested in the course must apply for admission. Applications may be downloaded from the course description page (under supplemental files).

Professor Farber and Mr. Infelise welcome your participation.
