The clinic offers hands-on lawyering experience in cases drawn from the judicial, administrative, and legislative docket of the National Wildlife Federation's Great Lakes Natural Resource Center in Ann Arbor. The Center's resident attorneys supervise students. Students work on a wide range of natural resources and conservation issues, and participate in some of the most significant environmental legal work in the United States. Students may visit officials, draft testimony on proposed legislation, write an appellate brief, participate in rule-making, or help negotiate a settlement. The clinic is a three-credit-hour offering that students may elect for one or two semesters, for a maximum of six hours. Courses in administrative and environmental law are not prerequisites, but are recommended.
