ENR Announces 2013-14 Fellows
The Environmental and Natural Resources Law program at Oregon Law continues to top programmatic rankings; in fact, this is the tenth year the ENR program has appeared in the top ten rankings. Alongside a strong overall program, the ENR fellowship program, which is based around theme-based projects, draws upon existing faculty strengths, provides synergistic opportunities for promoting student experience, reaches out to diverse communities and provides service to the community.
Each year, the ENR program offers highly sought after fellowships to approximately 20 students; this year, in particular, there were a record number of applicants. Through project development work and substantive research and writing, law student fellows tackle real-world environmental problems.
