Launched in 2005, the Summer Session provides law students and practitioners from around the world an opportunity to engage in intensive environmental law training over a three-week period. The Summer Session offers a diversity of dynamic courses taught by leading practitioners from government, business, and non-governmental organizations.

Due to the COVID-19 emergency,  the programs will be offered online. 

Our online classrooms allow for face-to-face collaboration with classmates and faculty in real time using a variety of features including small group break-out rooms and live chats. In addition, participants will complete self-paced, engaging coursework that you can access 24/7 on our convenient online platform.

Seminars in this Summer Session on Environmental Law can be taken for law school credit or a Certificate of Attendance. The Certificate will be presented to those who do not wish to take them for academic credit. The credits can also be used toward an LL.M. degree from Washington College of Law.
