Our profession has a responsibility to serve the greater good, which includes environmental protection. Michigan Law made significant contributions to the development of our nation's environmental law system. Now we have the opportunity to encourage a new generation of students to become better stewards of the environment that sustains all life.—David Uhlmann, Jeffrey F. Liss Professor from Practice and ELPP Director
Environmental Law and Policy Program
Environmental Law and Policy Program (ELPP) promotes scholarship, teaching, and interdisciplinary programs to address the myriad challenges facing our global environment. ELPP draws on the Law School's rich tradition in environmental and natural resources law, which dates to the early years of the environmental movement in the United States. ELPP also builds on the University of Michigan's outstanding interdisciplinary and dual degree programs—unmatched by any other law school—with the
School for Environment and Sustainability, the
Ford School of Public Policy, the
Ross School of Business, the
Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning, and the
School of Public Health.

David M. Uhlmann, the Jeffrey F. Liss Professor from Practice, is director of the ELPP and is responsible for the leadership and development of all aspects of the program. Prof. Uhlmann teaches Environmental Law and Policy, Environmental Crimes, Advanced Environmental Law, and Criminal Law. He heads the Michigan Environmental Crimes Project, advises the Michigan Journal of Environmental and Administrative Law and the Environmental Law Society, and mentors students interested in careers in environmental law, with a special emphasis on public service and public interest work. Prior to joining the Michigan faculty, Prof. Uhlmann served for 17 years in the U.S. Department of Justice, the last seven as chief of the Environmental Crimes Section, where he was the country's top environmental crimes prosecutor.
