The Environmental Law Writing Seminar is designed for students who are interested in environmental, land use, or natural resources law and 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 Professors Farber and Infelise during the fall semester, and with an instructor and continuing work during the spring semester, students will improve their writing and research skills while helping to shape the development of the law. JD students will have the opportunity to bid for topics chosen by the instructors. 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 will be available through the Center for Law, Energy, and the Environment. Because this class provides papers for ELQ's Annual Review, once enrolled students may not drop the course, must complete their paper, and must enroll in the spring semester.

JD Applications are due Friday, April 23rd with decisions made the following week. LLM Applications are due July 16th. (This includes Spring 2021 start and Fall 2021 start LLMs). After these deadlines, late applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis as space permits. You can find the application in the under the Supplemental File at the bottom of this page.
