Students work closely with program faculty during their three years of law school and build relationships that continue long after graduation. Our faculty members have substantial practice experience in natural resources and environmental law, and are eager to pass this experience on to their students. And importantly, from our faculty's diverse backgrounds, students cultivate an ability to look at issues from a variety of perspectives.
Each faculty member contributes his or her own unique talents beyond the classroom as well; they sponsor law reviews and student groups, coach competition teams, and work on environmental cases and causes. Our faculty also contributes important scholarship in the areas of environmental, natural resources, and Indian law, often working with student research assistants on these endeavors.
Beyond the classroom, students benefit from their work with clinical supervisors, who provide a wealth of expertise about natural resources and environmental law. Additionally, we have faculty who hold expertise in complementary areas such as agricultural law, environmental legal research, renewable energy transactions, and environmental crimes. In sum, our Program students are part of a strong community of faculty and mentors that support them as they undertake their legal studies and careers.
