Exciting new Summer Energy Law series joins summer school lineup
February 09, 2011
This summer’s Environmental Law Summer Program will feature a unique, five-week, ten-course Energy Law series in Session I that will bring national experts to campus to teach one-week, one-credit modules in many facets of the law of both renewable and traditional energy sources. The series is designed so that busy law students and practitioners can take one or many courses depending on their interest and available time.
Many other courses will be offered in both Session I and Session II. Administrative Law and Environmental Law, the basic building blocks of an environmental law career, will be taught in five-week, three-credit courses. Two-week intensives in Citizen Suits, NEPA, and Wetlands Law, taught by Lewis & Clark professors who have extensive practice experience, will provide inside information that is vital to an environmental regulatory law practice, and the two-week intensive in Natural Resources taught by a Lewis & Clark professor who is an expert in the field provides grounding in the many areas of natural resources law practice.
Each year Lewis & Clark offers a popular Legal Ecology field course, combining classroom instruction by a law professor and a noted ecologist with field study - but this year students have the opportunity to choose from two distinctly different and complementary courses: the two-week Urban Biodiversity course based in Portland, Oregon, and the one-week Ecosystem Function and the Law based in Malheur and Steens Mountain in southeast Oregon.
