SMGT 532 - Environmental and Energy Law Clinic

Course Description: 

This course provides students with the opportunity to experience the practical realities of being an environmental professional by working on actual cases under the supervision of a faculty member who is an experienced environmental attorney with a Chicago-based practice. The course includes weekly classroom sessions to build the skills environmental professionals must possess. Students apply these skills to cases in the Chicago area in which the faculty supervisor represents non-governmental organizations. The Clinic includes opportunities to participate in site visits, client interactions, a variety of professional meetings, and regulatory and enforcement proceedings. Students will engage in fact gathering, compliance analysis, client communication and case preparation activities, working alongside their faculty supervisor.
