    Earthrise Class 2016-2017

It’s time to apply to be a part of the Earthrise Clinic for the 2017-18 School Year!

The application period is now open for the 2017-18 Earthrise Law Center Clinic! The Earthrise clinic is a two-semester domestic environmental law clinic, but we do allow some students to enroll for just one semester when they have existing externship commitments or other conflicts.

In order to enroll in Earthrise you must first submit an application. We are looking for second and third year students and LLMs who are motivated to help the Earthrise clinical professors represent local, regional and national environmental groups in public interest litigation. We currently have a dozen or more cases around the country, involving water pollution, misuse of our public lands and threats to endangered species.

The deadline is now March 24th, 2017 at midnight (PST). 

Decisions will be announced around the first week of April, in time for registration.

Follow the link below for the application form and instructions or find application materials on the How to Apply page under the Student Experience tab to the right.
