Environmental & Land Use Law Externship Program

Through the Environmental and Land Use Law Clinical Externship Program, students earn academic credit while training in legal offices or departments of government agencies and non-government organizations doing environmental and land use legal work in Rhode Island and southern New England. Externs are exposed to the various ways in which environmental and land use law is practiced by government agencies and non-government organizations through litigation, administrative rulemaking and adjudication, and engagement in the legislative process. Students participate in a two-credit, graded seminar “Advanced Topics in Environmental and Land Use Law” designed by the professor, after consultation with the field supervisors, to teach substantive law, regulation, and policy directly relevant to the students’ field work, as well as the ethics and legal skills required of an environmental attorney.
