The 2012-2013 Green New York clinic is now accepting applications! This clinical program works in conjunction with the New York City Law Department to address the legal problems that New York City confronts in undertaking the efforts of PlaNYC. PlaNYC is an ambitious urban agenda that involves a major focus on environmental issues, ranging from reducing the city’s impact on climate change to dealing with waterways and brownfields. Students work under the supervision of New York City Law Department attorneys to conduct legal research and draft memos.
The clinical program consists of a Fall seminar (2 credits) and Spring clinic (2 credits). See the course catalog for more details. Admission is with the permission of the instructor.
To apply, email Professor David Barron (firstname.lastname@example.org) and describe your interest in the program and any relevant academic or professional experience. Applications are considered on a rolling basis. Interested students are encouraged to apply as early as possible.
