The award, which recognizes the best student-organized educational program or public service project of the year focusing on issues in the field of environmental, energy or natural resources law, will be presented Aug. 11 at the ABA Annual Meeting in San Francisco.
The UNC School of Law’s Environmental Law Symposium is held as part of the annual Festival of Legal Learning and has been providing continuing legal education courses to practicing attorneys for more than 20 years.
The symposium is popular with local attorneys and is highly rated each year because of the extensive efforts of the Environmental Law Project and the impressive presentations given by the faculty. Finally, collaborating with the Center for Law, Environment, Adaptation and Resources, the ELP hosts an annual networking luncheon after the symposium, creating an opportunity for practitioners and students to meet and discuss current topics in environmental law.
