The Environmental Rights Institute coordinates the various components of the Delaware Law School's environmental programs. The Institute offers the possibility of practical experience in the field through the Environmental and Natural Resources Law Clinic. Additional opportunities on campus include moot court opportunities, multiple course offerings, and a joint JD/MMP with the University of Delaware in Marine Policy. Environmental courses have also been a regular facet of our foreign programs in Kenya and Australia.
Our alumni have richly benefitted from the program’s experiential learning opportunities. More than 500 students have participated in our environmental clinic or in an environmental externship. About 1 in 5 of Widener Law Delaware’s 11,500 graduates took an environmental-type course here. Scores of our alumni practice environmental law, making a difference locally and globally.
