LAW 209 - Applied Environmental Law.
The principal aim of this course is to allow students to work with a non-profit organization, allowing the students to engage one or more discrete issues of environmental law impacting the local community. Students will not only apply their knowledge of environmental law, but also develop specialized knowledge in the area of environmental law presented by the selected issue(s). Advanced doctrinal material in environmental law will be presented appropriate to the issues selected during the term (for example, water quality or conservation easements). As a group the students will attend the client’s meetings regularly, obtain information from state and federal agencies as necessary, file information requests, research legal questions and draft memoranda as necessary to tackle the problem at hand. Students will not be engaged in legal representation but will assist local attorneys with research. 2 hours. Fraley Prerequisite: Environmental Law.
