    ​​​FELLOWSHIP DESCRIPTION

    The Environmental and Natural Resources Law Clinic (ENRLC) is pleased to invite eligible candidates to apply for a two-year Clinic Fellow position from June 1, 2017 through May 31, 2019. The fellowship combines the opportunity to obtain an LLM degree in Environmental Law from one of the leading environmental law programs in the nation with the opportunity to work with experienced environmental practitioners and students in a clinical setting focused on public interest work. The fellowship includes a full tuition waiver and a stipend of approximately $35,000 to cover living expenses.

    In addition to pursuing the LLM degree, the Clinic Fellow is expected to work part-time (at least 20 hours per week) in the ENRLC. The Fellow will take a lead role in managing a project designed to provide assistance to communities faced with toxic pollution problems throughout northern New England. This project, the Partnership for Justice, is a joint effort between the ENRLC and Toxics Action Center, a non-profit organization that assists community groups throughout northern New England with organization, outreach, media, and strategy development. The ENRLC's primary role is to engage in comprehensive legal analysis, provide sound legal advice to community groups, and help them navigate the regulatory processes applicable to their situation. In appropriate instances, the Fellow may also lay the groundwork for litigation, although this fellowship is not necessarily a litigation-oriented position. The Clinic Fellow will work closely with the ENRLC Director and other clinic faculty and staff to represent clients and supervise student clinicians. The Fellow's responsibilities will include, but are not limited to:

    Working with and supervising student clinicians to provide legal assistance to help community groups in northern New England, including analyzing the maze of federal and state environmental laws, regulations, and administrative processes that apply to proposed industrial projects, contaminated site cleanups, and other pollution-related projects;

    Communicating with Toxics Action Center and community groups to provide legal counseling and advice in person or through other means, including at night and on weekends;

    Managing the partnership between ENRLC and Toxics Action Center, including taking a lead role in administrative, contracting, and grant funding reporting duties;

    Working with the ENRLC Director to support and promote the project, including planning for future funding for the project;

    Working with Toxics Action Center to identify local counsel for community groups when necessary and to expand the list of experts, scientists, engineers and attorneys who will provide their services to community groups for free or at a reduced rate in the region;

    Supporting a referral system by which individuals and groups who contact the ENRLC for legal assistance in addressing toxic pollution in New England are referred to Toxics Action Center for community organizing assistance; and

    Participating in the day-to-day life of the ENRLC, including weekly staff meetings, seminars, and strategy sessions.

    The Fellow may also choose to participate in a teaching practicum for academic credit in which s/he assists Clinic faculty in teaching student clinicians. The teaching practicum offers opportunities to teach in both a traditional classroom setting for the clinic's weekly seminar class and in a clinical role as a supervising attorney to help guide and mentor students in their work on clinic cases and projects.
