Conservation Law Clinic

Protecting the beauty of a beautiful state

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.

"The highlight of my semester"

"Heck, yes, I am planning to enroll in the spring CLC clinic! This has been the absolute highlight of my semester. Between all the challenges of the 2L year and the world around us feeling very unsteady beneath my feet, I've relied on my CLC peers and meetings to motivate me. It was perfect timing to have as my last class of each week our CLC seminar, reminding me why I'm even in law school to begin with! Even without the seminar portion, I'm super excited to continue building relationships with my environmentalist peers and working on interesting projects."
