Students for Economic & Environmental Justice

Environmental Justice Workshop

The Environmental Justice Workshop provides pro bono legal assistance on environmental and environmental justice issues by partnering with Bay Area organizations. Students engage with issues that are local, national, and international in scope, including topics such as: climate change, sustainable economic development, food justice, international finance and development, land use and permitting, and energy policy.


Students have the opportunity to draft legal documents, conduct policy research, and provide direct services under the supervision of experienced Bay Area practitioners. Projects are designed to evolve as students shape the work around their current environmental justice concerns. EJW recognizes the human aspect of environmental issues and interfaces with affected groups in order to help advance community-based solutions.
