Student Eligibility

To be eligible to enroll in the Environmental Litigation Clinic for credit, you must be a second, third, or fourth year student. When space permits, the Clinic also welcomes LLM candidates. The prerequisites are Evidence (which may be taken concurrently with the Clinic) and either Environmental Skills or Environmental Survey, as well as permission of the professors (prerequisites may be waived by the professors). Students must be in good academic standing to be considered for the clinic (and maintain that standing if accepted). Preference is given to third and fourth year students. Students must be available for clinic work and classes during the day. We cannot accept students who work full time.

Though grades are important for selection into the Clinic, other factors are: 1) balance in the program of students’ skills, needs, interests and background: 2) the demands of the anticipated caseload; 3) interest in the environment and litigation as a career.
