The Environmental Law Institute (ELI), based in Washington, DC, is accepting applications for several positions that may be of interest to law students considering careers in environmental law and policy. Please feel free to share this information broadly.
Public Interest Law Fellowship. Each year, ELI hires one or more recent law school graduates to work closely with the Institute’s attorneys and other professionals to advance environmental protection through the effective use of law and policy. Successful candidates for the one-year fellowship will have a strong academic background, superior legal research and writing skills, and a demonstrated interest in environmental issues. Applications for 2017-18 are now being accepted through November 1, 2016.
Law Clerkships. ELI offers clerkship positions for law students during the summer as well as during the spring and fall semesters. Law clerks work closely with ELI experts on domestic and international research projects spanning the Institute’s full range of program areas.
