California Lawyers Assocation, Environmental Law Section – Environmental Law Diversity and Inclusion Fellowship Program (Deadline: October 26, 2020)

A terrific fellowship opportunity for qualified law students. One of my students was a recipient recently and had a great experience. The program provides a summer $6500 stipend and helps place students in a valuable environmental law summer internship.

To see the fellowship criteria, see the program description on the CLA Environmental Law Section’s website at https://calawyers.org/section/environmental-law/fellowships/.
