Welcome to the Yale Environmental Law Clinic.
The Clinic is an interdisciplinary program that addresses environmental law and policy problems on behalf of a variety of clients including non-profit organizations, government agencies and international bodies. Students work on a specific environmental law or policy project throughout the semester, which may include litigation, drafting legislation, organizing community action, developing media campaigns, participating in stakeholder working groups or writing policy proposals. We cover a range of issues such as air, water, energy, climate change, endangered species and environmental governance. The Clinic complements students' hands-on work with seminars on environmental law and advocacy and guest speakers. Please explore our website for more information.
