The Environmental Law Pro Bono Project provides students an opportunity to research, analyze, and write about pressing issues in environmental law. The project introduces students to local attorneys practicing environmental law, familiarizes them with the complex array of laws and regulations surrounding environmental issues, and exposes them to the local communities that are most often negatively impacted by those issues. This year, students will have the opportunity to work under the guidance of attorneys either Landesa or the California Air Resources Board.
