The Environmental Law Diversity and Inclusion Fellowship program sponsored by the Environmental Law Section gives law students a chance to spend 8 to 10 weeks over the summer practicing environmental, energy, land use, and natural resources law at a participating government agency or public interest organization. Each participant receives a $5,000 stipend from the Section and other generous sponsors. The Section assists students with placement at a governmental agency or public interest organization and matches the Fellows with mentors who practice in the field.
