Environmental Rights Institute

Delaware Law School has one of the deepest and longest-standing environmental law programs in the world. It was one of the first schools in the nation to offer Environmental Law regularly, beginning in 1981, and heralds the world’s 4th longest-standing clinical program, which began in 1989.

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, and multiple course offerings.

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.
