For more than forty years, the University of Oregon School of Law's Environmental and Natural Resources (ENR) Law Program's focus on public interest environmental law and commitment to innovations in environmental legal education have made it one of the nation's oldest and most respected programs.
ENR pioneered the earliest academic curriculum in public interest environmental law, created the first environmental law clinic in the United States, and through its students, annually hosts the oldest and largest public interest environmental law conference in the world. Our experienced faculty are some of the nation's leading scholars in the field of environmental law who teach the traditional regulatory mechanisms of environmental law, expose students to emerging problem-solving tools in cutting-edge courses, and provide practical training in skills-based courses.
ENR's six interdisciplinary research projects team student energy with faculty expertise to provide research, analysis, and solutions to environmental problems in Oregon, the nation, and around the globe. For students committed to engaging the law to support sustainability, the opportunities are second to none.
