Law Student Opportunities

Join Us!

Are you a law student who is interested in environment, energy, and resources law? If so, you've come to the right place! The latest opportunities for you to get involved with the Section of Environment, Energy, and Resources (SEER) are listed below. If you are not already a member of the ABA and/or SEER, law students can join for free!


The Section is proud to offer a Law Student Scholar program. This program is available for most in-person conferences sponsored by SEER. Selected scholars will have the opportunity to network with conference attendees and attend CLE sessions. This scholarship covers the conference registration fee, but does not include lodging or transportation. Selected scholars will be asked to assist SEER staff with collecting session evaluations, CLE sign-ins, and monitoring sessions during the conference. Applications are accepted from students who meet the following requirements:

  • Member of the ABA Section of Environment, Energy, and Resources. Not a member? Sign-up online here.
  • Currently enrolled, or will be enrolled at the time of the conference, in an ABA-accredited law school.
  • Completion of the application by the deadline.

Special Committee for Law Students

The Section's Special Committee for Law Students encourages law student members to use the committee as a way to network with other SEER members, become more involved in the Section, and learn about environmental, energy and natural resources law.

Membership in the committee will allow you to add to your skill set, broaden your knowledge in the areas of environment, energy, and resources law, and give you valuable information in making career choices. If you are not already a member, you can join on SEER Connect and get involved in the conversation!

The committee has put together a database of Environmental Law Societies at law schools throughout the country.  This database will help the Section reach out to these organizations when there is a local conference or event.  To ensure that your Environmental Law Society (ELS) is included, please send an email to Kevin Gordon.  Please include your contact information and school affiliation.
