Environmental Law Society

School of Law students Rebecca Schlenker and Michael Tone of the Environmental Law Society cleaning up at Sleeping Giant State Park

The Environmental Law Society provides students with the opportunity to explore this specialized area of the law outside the classroom.

The society offers a balanced approach to environmental law, with many members interested in corporate practice and others interested in public, nonprofit or government service.

The Society is committed to:

  • Promoting within the law school community a knowledge of, and respect for, environmental issues which face society, the nation and the planet
  • Providing academic and professional support to students seeking a career in environmental law
  • Providing volunteer time, effort and funding to area communities to promote environmental awareness.

Recent activities include participation in area beach clean-up projects and various Earth Day events.
