Advanced Environmental Law Clinic
The Advanced Environmental Law Clinic provides an opportunity for students who have already taken the Environmental Law Clinic to continue intense individual project work on cases or matters in which they have previously been involved. Advanced students will work closely with the supervising clinic attorney on their designated projects and are expected to take increasing responsibility for managing the necessary work and representation of clients. In addition, advanced students are expected to serve as mentors to less experienced clinic students enrolled in the basic Environmental Law Clinic course and will thereby receive additional training in basic team building and supervision skills. Advanced students may arrange with the instructor to receive between two and seven units. No student may receive more than 27 overall clinical credits, however, during the course of the student's law school career. Writing (W) credit is for 3Ls only. Elements used in grading: Attendance and participation in class, professionalism, timeliness, initiative, and follow-through on project work and other class requirements.
