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.
