CLEE Advisory Board of Directors Emeritus Circle

Berkeley Law’s Center for Law, Energy & the Environment (CLEE) has been the beneficiary of the generous time, experience, and financial contributions of its Advisory Board members since its inception in 2005. The Board has helped the organization take root and grow from a tentative idea to a significant contributor to law and policy discourses in California and beyond. 

Because of the distinguished role that they play in the center, CLEE has established an Emeritus Circle for members retiring from the Advisory Board, to recognize their past leadership and commitment, their enduring legacy in CLEE’s ongoing work, and to encourage the continuation of their support and involvement. 

If you have any questions about the Emeritus Circle, contact, c. (510) 642-7235.
