The Year in EELP Student Research & Analysis

As we congratulate the class of 2020, we want to highlight our students’ contributions to environmental and energy law research and scholarship. EELP’s student research assistants were hard at work this school year updating and adding to the Regulatory Rollback Tracker and conducting research for our ongoing projects. They also wrote a variety of white papers, analyses, and blog posts. Choose a topic that interests you and dive into some original analysis by our students!
