The Conservation Law Clinic is an opportunity for second- and third-year law students to serve as interns in the Conservation Law Center, Inc. a public interest law firm, and work on actual matters for clients who need assistance with natural resource conservation issues. Center staff attorneys and clinic students collaborate to resolve organization and incorporation problems, draft model legislation, and advocate for conservation of wildlife, ecological systems, and protected areas.
The Clinic's clients include a variety of non-profit conservation organizations and governmental bodies. Clinic matters have included work on protecting the Great Lakes, drafting conservation easements, and developing new legal protections for migration. The Conservation Law Center is fervent about its causes, and the Center's clients are impressed by and appreciative of students' work.
The clinic complements Indiana Law’s acclaimed environmental law program and works in partnership with the IU School of Public and Environmental Affairs.
