Environmental Law Practice is practice-oriented, skills seminar. Weekly, two hour class meetings will focus on environmental practice and policy through the perspective of government regulators, law firm practitioners, and public interest lawyers. Guest speakers from each of these three practice areas will address the class. Students will conduct an interview, a negotiation, and a deposition, and will research and write a major motion or petition, submitting a draft for review and comment before the final product. In addition to weekly class meetings, the professor will hold individual conferences with the students to discuss their ongoing projects. Students will receive 3 hours of academic credit and will fulfill both skills or RWE writing requirements.
Environmental Law is strongly suggested as a prerequisite for this course.
