T.A. Barron Fellowships for Summer Work in Public Interest Environmental Law We’re offering five fellowships up to $10,000 to Harvard Law School students doing work within the public interest environmental law field during the summer of 2021. Qualifying work could include positions at government entities, NGOs, or other public interest organizations working on issues such as climate change, energy regulation, land acquisition and management, pollution control, carbon policy, environmental justice, water quality, or biodiversity conservation. This is not an exclusive list of employers or fields, and students are invited to think broadly about work that might qualify. Read more here.
EELP regularly hires research assistants to work closely with our attorneys on a variety of topics in environmental and energy law. Students may help us track and analyze federal regulatory developments, research legal issues related to sea level rise, or work on research related to how the private sector is responding to climate change, among other topics. Students may prepare internal research memos and also have opportunities to contribute to publications or blogs on the topics they research.
If you are a Harvard Law student interested in working with EELP, send your resume and a brief statement of interest (up to 5 sentences) to Staff Attorney Hana Vizcarra.
See below for examples of our student’s work. More student posts are available here.
