Conservation Law Field Placement
Course Number: LAW 6930 Credits: 2 or 3
The Conservation Law Field Placement offers law students the opportunity to learn and gain valuable experience while working on contemporary conservation challenges involving federal, state, and local environmental law, natural resources law, land use law, and administrative law. Students will be placed in not-for-profit or governmental conservation organizations and will work under the direct supervision of a licensed attorney housed in those organizations. Professor Angelo will serve as Faculty supervisor and will run a bi-weekly classroom component (held via Zoom) that will provide students in field placements an opportunity to reflect on, and share, their experiences. Through the classroom component, Professor Angelo and guest speaker attorneys will lead discussions on a variety of substantive, skills, and research topics to guide students in their field work. Students will also do presentations on their field projects. Students will also participate in issue-based field trips.
