Pace Environmental Litigation Clinic

The Pace Environmental Litigation Clinic intensively immerses students in an environmental law practice representing public interest groups, primarily the Riverkeeper, Inc. The Riverkeeper's mission is to protect the waters of the Hudson River system from the Adirondacks to Long Island Sound. The Clinic represents Riverkeeper in federal and state courts, federal and state administrative proceedings and occasionally in local proceedings. Clinic students represent Riverkeeper in all of these proceedings. Their efforts have led to precedent setting decisions by federal courts under both the Clean Water Act and the Resource Conservation.
