Summer School: An Introduction to Careers in Environmental Law and Policy
The Environmental Law Institute &
DC Bar’s Environment, Energy and Natural Resources Section
Each summer the ELI Summer School holds a series of seminars about the legal foundations of environmental protection in the United States. The series begins with an afternoon careers seminar and networking event, and continues with weekly lunchtime seminars that are taught by experts working in major arenas of environmental law and policy: air, water, land use, hazardous sites/substances, products, and climate change.
June 17 kicked off our summer series with an introductory seminar to expose our visitors to the many possible career options in the realm of environmental law and policy. Speakers were drawn from diverse practices, including law, science, and policy, including:
Scott Schang, Vice President of Publications & Associates, Environmental Law Institute (moderator)
Benjamin Wilson, Principal, Beveridge & Diamond PC
Alexia Kelly, Senior Associate, World Resources Institute
Grant MacIntyre, Attorney-Adviser, Environmental Protection Agency
Kristen Genovese, Staff Attorney, The Center for International Environmental Law
This ELI Associate Seminar was made possible by the generous support of our members.
