Where
Webinar Only

An ELI Public Webinar

Join the Environmental Law Institute and the Pro Bono Clearinghouse for the fourth part of our CLE series centered around community lawyering for environmental justice. ELI’s Clearinghouse strives to ensure that communities with viable environmental legal matters get the representation they need, whether that be in a courtroom, in front of an agency, or in a more facilitative or consultative fashion. The Clearinghouse connects communities and individuals seeking representation with the many hundreds of environmental law members at ELI and at various collaborating organizations, as well as non-ELI members of the Clearinghouse,

This part of the series will focus on how to work with non-legal experts on cases. Particularly in the field of community lawyering, it can be important to bring in experts who can support communities and the issues they are facing. When should you bring in a non-legal expert? What is the best way to find an expert? What challenges arise when working with non-legal experts, and how can they be overcome? Join the Environmental Law Institute and our expert panelists to discuss these questions and so much more!
