Careers in Environmental, Energy, and Resources Law
A free podcast download is available of the Careers in Environmental, Energy, and Resources Law teleconference which was held January 27, 2010. Interest in environmental, energy and resources law has increased dramatically over the past couple of years, due in part to an increasing focus on climate change and a general awareness of related issues. In this quick teleconference, four lawyers with varied backgrounds in the fields of environmental, energy and natural resources law provided practical guidance on various career options, advice for achieving certain career goals, and overviews of their day-to-day practices.
