ENVIRONMENTAL STUDIES (L82)  (Dept. Info)Arts & Sciences  (Policies)SP2015

Description:This course constitutes the technical component of an interdisciplinary environmental clinic based at the Law School. Engineering and Arts & Sciences students participate in interdisciplinary teams with law students, handling environmental projects for public interest, environmental or community organizations or individuals. Students from other schools may also participate with permission of instructor. Projects may involve the following activities: representing clients in federal and state court litigation and administrative proceedings; drafting proposed legislation; commenting on proposed regulations, permits, environmental impact statements or environmental assessments, and similar documents; and evaluating matters for potential future action. The goal is that for each project, students will have primary responsibility for handling the matter, and faculty will play a secondary, supervisory role. Students may provide such technical support as investigating unknown facts, evaluating facts presented by other parties (such as in government reports), and working with law students to develop and present facts relevant to an understanding of and resolution of the matter. Students must work at least an average of 12 hours per week on clinic matters, including attendance at and participation each week in: at least one individual meeting with the professor; one group meeting involving the student team assigned to each project and the professor(s); and a two-hour seminar for all students in the clinic. Prerequisites: The clinic is open to graduate students and upper-level undergraduates with coursework and/or experience in environmental engineering, environmental science, or related fields. Enrollment is a two-step process including the submission of a Request for Permission to Enroll form (found at: http://law.wustl.edu/intenv/index.asp?id=429) and online registration. All registrants will be placed on the waiting list and students will be selectively allowed to enroll. Enrollment will be limited to 8-10 students depending on the needs of our cases. We give preference to students who are graduating, as well as to students with backgrounds and skills that best match the Clinic's anticipated needs in terms of our pending cases and projects.

A course may be either a “Home” course or an “Ident” course.

A “Home” course is a course that is created, maintained and “owned” by one academic department (aka the “Home” department). The “Home” department is primarily responsible for the decision making and logistical support for the course and instructor.

An “Ident” course is the exact same course as the “Home” (i.e. same instructor, same class time, etc), but is simply being offered to students through another department for purposes of registering under a different department and course number.

Students should, whenever possible, register for their courses under the department number toward which they intend to count the course. For example, an AFAS major should register for the course "Africa: Peoples and Cultures" under its Ident number, L90 306B, whereas an Anthropology major should register for the same course under its Home number, L48 306B.
