Careers in Environmental Law Speaker Series

The Environmental Law and Policy Program offers a speaker series focusing on careers in environmental law. This speaker series brings environmental practitioners from a wide range of backgrounds to Michigan Law for lunchtime presentations that explore the myriad ways that environmental lawyers contribute to environmental protection and natural resource conservation efforts. The speaker series includes public service and public interest attorneys, as well as attorneys in private practice and within corporations. The practice areas encompass new areas of environmental law, such as alternative energy and carbon reduction strategies, as well as more traditional compliance counseling and enforcement practices.
