Environmental and Energy Law Concentration

  • The environmental and energy law fields overlap a great deal. For example: electrical utilities are one of the main sources of air pollution governed by the Clean Air Act; fracking poses potential threats to ground and drinking water; and renewable energy provides important opportunities to reduce greenhouse gases and so is a focus on climate change law. In these and other ways the two fields are increasingly inter-related. Increasingly, employers are looking for people who have both environmental law and energy law expertise, not just one or the other.
