Supervised Extship Sem: Environmental Advocacy (LAW-769-001)
IMPORTANT: CLASS WILL MEET IN SMALL GROUPS FOR AN EXTRA HOUR EVERY OTHER WEEK. The time/place of this extra meeting is determined by the professor.

The environmental externship combines the strength of the externship program with dynamic opportunities to experience public interest environmental law, both in the classroom and the field. Basic domestic and international environmental legal precepts are covered, as are various litigation, lobbying and communication strategies. Past students have worked in advocacy groups, government agencies, trade associations, UN organizations, legislative offices and pro bono firms (among others).
