Founded in 1994, the Environmental Law and Justice Clinic serves the dual mission of training law students to be effective and ethical advocates and assisting low-income communities and communities of color to reduce the disparities of pollution. The clinic is staffed by ten to twelve law students, two full-time professors, a part-time staff scientist, and a Graduate Fellow. The State Bar certifies the law students to perform lawyerly tasks under the supervision of their professors.

The clinic’s 2011 work focused primarily on reducing the disparities of air pollution. This Fall 2011 report highlights some of the clinic’s work and accomplishments and describes why the clinic has focused its efforts on reducing air pollution.
