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).
To celebrate the end of ELI's 2023 Summer School series, please join us for a networking reception at ELI's office in Washington, DC! This session is free and open to the public. We will be inviting ELI Board members, Leadership Council members, and our 2023 Summer School speakers to join and share their career experiences and advice with our Summer School participants. It will be a wonderful opportunity for anyone interested in the field of environmental law to meet experts, ask questions, and network with others in the field. We will have light refreshments and snacks available, as well.
