Environmental Law Clinic
This clinic is offered in New Haven in collaboration with Save the Sound (formerly Connecticut Fund for the Environment), the state and region’s premier non-profit environmental advocate. We work to address the climate crisis, preserve land and protect water throughout Connecticut and the Long Island Sound region.
|Semesters Offered||Fall and spring|
|Class Meets||Th 2:00-4:00 (fall)|
Students work directly with Save the Sound attorneys on climate change, clean water and open space matters pending before federal and state courts, administrative agencies, and the state legislature. An on-site, bi-weekly (every two weeks) seminar class taught by Save the Sound Senior Legal Counsel will focus on Connecticut environmental law and advocacy. This clinic requires a minimum of 10 fieldwork hours per week, 8 of which must occur on-site at the Save the Sound New Haven office. This is a one semester clinic, but students have the opportunity to continue their work in subsequent semesters through Advanced Fieldwork.
