Save the Date: Environmental Awards Banquet

Thursday, April 16, 2020

Ecology Law Quarterly‘s Annual Banquet is a celebration of all that our fellow students, faculty, alumni, and environmental law practitioners have accomplished at Berkeley Law this year. It provides an opportunity for us to come together in one place and reconnect with the environmental law community, see the new and old faces of the journal, and to foster greater connectivity between students and those working in the field. The banquet also serves as a fundraiser for summer fellowships to support students pursuing work in public interest environmental law.
