Each summer, ELI convenes a complimentary seminar series that offers an introduction to the legal and policy foundations of environmental protection in the United States.
ELI's Summer School is a series of seminars taught by experts in their fields, introducing the audience to important areas of environmental law, including the Clean Air Act (CAA), Clean Water Act (CWA), Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA), Endangered Species Act (ESA), National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), climate change law, energy law, land use law, and environmental justice. Faculty will also incorporate major regulatory and judicial updates to the laws.
Who will benefit: All are welcome. Students and emerging professionals will have unique opportunities to learn, hear updates, ask questions, and network. The series is intended for:
- law students and graduate students, and
- working professionals new to or looking for a refresher course in environmental law (such as interns, summer clerks, and associates, or second-career professionals).
An Introduction to Careers in Environmental Law and Policy
Our Summer School Series begins with a session to introduce participants to the many exciting career opportunities in various sectors of environmental law and policy. This session offers the chance for budding environmental professionals to ask questions and interact with leading experts working in environmental law and policy fields. Faculty will dive into their career journeys and share advice with participants. These experts represent a diverse range of employment areas, such as: non-profit, government, corporate, think-tank, private practice, and other sectors.
