ECOL 8710/JURI 5290
|Environmental Law Practicum|
Ecology, law, and other graduate students work together to address pressing environmental concerns identified by community stakeholders. Skills used include problem identification, research and analysis, legislative drafting, and presentations.
Non-traditional format: This practicum requires students to work on group projects. In addition to the three regular lecture hours, students work group must meet with the instructor and discuss its topic for at least one additional hour per week. Because students choose topics and form work groups after the semester begins, the class does not formally list a discussion hour as ECOL 8710D. (The timing of this hour will be scheduled by mutual agreement of the students working on a particular topic and the instructor.) The requirement of these additional meetings is clearly described in the syllabus.
