Environmental Law Clinic

The clinic offers hands-on experience in cases drawn from the judicial, administrative, and legislative docket of the National Wildlife Federation's Great Lakes Regional Center in Ann Arbor. The Center's resident attorneys supervise students. Students work on natural resources and conservation issues, and participate in some of the most significant environmental legal work in the United States. Students may, among other things, draft legislation, prepare pleadings, write an appellate brief, participate in rule-making, or help negotiate a settlement. The clinic is a graded three-credit-hour offering that students may elect for one or two semesters, for a maximum of six credits. Credits should count toward New York's pro bono requirement. Courses in administrative and environmental law are not prerequisites, but would be helpful. For further information, please contact Professor Neil Kagan, Clinic Director, at 734-763-7087 or

The Clinic does not fulfill the Law School's professional responsibility requirement for graduation. The Clinic does not fulfill the New York State Bar ethics requirement unless students also simultaneously enroll in 402 Ethics Colloquium section 002.
