Lisa Tucker has been conducting pro bono work with CLEE since 2015, focusing on the health and sustainability of our oceans and fisheries.

CLEE is delighted to have volunteers and interns join us in advancing our cutting-edge research in environmental law and policy. Past opportunities have spanned from from pro-bono attorneys conducting work with us over the course of multiple semesters to undergraduate students from universities around the country joining our team as summer interns.

 

What to expect

As a volunteer with CLEE, you should expect to work alongside leaders in the field advancing innovative and timely work on environmental law and policy. We are committed to ensuring that our volunteers and interns are doing work that prepares them for a career in environmental and energy governance.

 

Undergraduate internships

We frequently have undergraduate students from UC Berkeley as well as other universities work with us over the summer. We ask undergraduate students to commit to working with us at least 50% time for a minimum of 10 weeks.

We are not typically able to provide funding for our undergraduates. We encourage students to seek out available resources at their home universities, which will often have programs to support undergraduate research.

 

Graduate student researchers

Graduate students from UC Berkeley and other universities with an interest in an environmental and energy law and policy often join us for full-time appointments during the summer. They are also encouraged to pursue research with us over the course of the semester as GSRs.

Current Berkeley Law students should also see available research opportunities in environmental and energy law.

 

Professional opportunities

There is a range of ways that professional practitioners can engage in our research projects. If you are a practitioner in environmental and/or energy law and policy and are interested in our work, please reach out to us to discuss opportunities for getting involved.
