This seminar (Law 291.A) is a co-requisite to the Environmental Law Clinic (295.5E). The seminar will complement work in the Clinic by providing environmental subject-matter background relevant to specific Clinic projects, training in practical lawyering skills necessary for success in these projects (such as brief writing and oral advocacy), in-depth exposure to ethical issues that arise in environmental law practice, and an opportunity for reflection on and discussion of Clinic projects. The seminar will feature a number of guest speakers and topical readings. The seminar 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 also addresses issues, tensions, and coalition-building within the environmental advocacy movement as we find it.
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.
