Environmental Law Concentration

Faculty Advisers Dan Selmi and Kathy Trisolini discuss the Concentration in the video on the right.

The Environmental Law Concentration has three goals:

First, students will receive the substantive background knowledge needed to work in any area of Environmental Law. This knowledge will include grounding in the principles of Administrative Law, which governs the procedures that environmental agencies follow.

Second, the Concentration will allow students to delve more deeply into several specific subjects in small classes and to develop an appreciation for the policy choices and regulatory instruments used in the field.

Finally, students will see how Environmental Law is practiced through an experiential learning class. This class may be an externship with a public agency, such as the California Attorney General’s Office, or it may be participation in the National Environmental Moot Court team

Throughout this process, students will receive individual guidance from the Concentration Adviser, Professor Daniel Selmi, who can be reached at Dan.Selmi@lls.edu.  If you have any questions about the Concentration, please contact him.  Also available to help students is Professor Kathy Trisolini, who can be reached at Katherine.Trisolini@lls.edu.
