ELPP Lecture Series

The Environmental Law and Policy Program Lecture Series features speakers from a wide range of backgrounds in government, academia, public interest groups, and private practice. The lecture series provides Michigan Law students the opportunity to learn from leaders of the environmental movement in the United States, builds relationships between the Law School and the environmental community, and contributes to debate about the environmental challenges facing our nation and the world. Students often meet privately with speakers during their visits to Michigan Law. Some lecturers are co-sponsored by other schools and programs at the University of Michigan. All lectures are open to the public; admission is free.

For a complete list of past speakers as well as videos of their presentations (when available), visit our ELPP Lecture Series Archive Page.
