This seminar (Law 291.A) is a co-requisite for the Environmental Law Clinic (295.5E). The seminar will complement work in the Clinic by providing training in practical lawyering skills necessary for success in Clinic projects and environmental advocacy more generally (such as legal ethics, persuasive writing, and administrative advocacy), environmental subject-matter background relevant to specific Clinic projects, and an opportunity for discussion of and reflection on Clinic projects. The seminar also seeks to train students in tactical analysis of environmental problems and solutions, so that they can begin to identify which among litigation, legislative, and/or policy strategies will be most effective in producing a desired environmental outcome. The seminar will feature topical readings, occasional guest speakers, and a site visit.
Enrollment in the seminar (2 units) and the Clinic (4 units) is by permission of the instructor; see description of Law 295.5E (Environmental Law Clinic) for link to application.
Due to the nature of this class, some or all of the sessions may not be recorded and posted except as required for accommodation of students with disabilities.
Due to the nature of this class, real-time attendance is required (without an alternative way to earn equivalent credit) except in cases of illness or emergency.
There are no prerequisites for this class. Environmental Law & Policy and Administrative Law are particularly helpful, however, and we suggest that Clinic students take one as a co-requisite if not previously taken. The Environmental Law Clinic must be taken concurrently with the Seminar.
