The Environmental Law Clinic focuses on Environmental Justice and Environmental Health. Our varied issue docket spans local to national matters, and provides hands-on opportunities for students in litigation, administrative agency practice, legislative drafting, and policy formulation. The Clinic has three goals: making students creative and effective environmental lawyers; serving client needs for pro bono representation; and making an environmental difference.

The Clinic seeks to address major environmental crises of our time in a way that promotes social, racial, and economic equity. Simply put, how can we create a new green economy that is both ecologically sustainable and more just?
