The course will include an introductory segment that will introduce students to the nature of environmental practice, ethical responsibilities in transactional and client relationships, keys to interdisciplinary collaboration and skills training in some of the more common transactional areas the clinic will pursue. Readings will accompany these discussions and guest lectures from practicing professionals and scholars will supplement these materials.
In addition, substantive subject matter reading lists will be developed and provided on a project by project basis, and include readings on themes that cut across projects (e.g. environmental justice). Clinic deliverables will be the product of traditional and non-traditional research, and the underlying research will generally be evident (e.g. through annotated instruments, supporting memoranda, bibliographies and similar tools). To the extent possible, clinic projects will be designed to address novel approaches to contemporary environmental issues.
