Environmental Law and Policy Clinic - LAW879

This unit provides students with an opportunity to experience environmental law and policy 'in action' and give practical effect to skills learnt in other law units. Through a placement in legal practice, an environmental organisation, government or another institution, and supervision by practitioners, the student will learn about the role and practice of environmental law. This unit provides clinical placement opportunities that expose a student to real people and situations, actual legal problems and policy initiatives. The placement also requires reflection on, and analysis of how environmental lawyers can engage in a variety of strategies to achieve change.
