This clinic is offered in collaboration with the Connecticut Fund for the Environment (CFE) and its bi-state program, Save the Sound. CFE/Save the Sound is the premier non-profit public-interest legal advocate for Connecticut's environment. Students work directly with CFE/Save the Sound attorneys on matters pending before federal and state courts, administrative agencies, and the state legislature. A biweekly seminar taught by CFE Senior Legal Counsel and guest experts focuses on Connecticut environmental law and advocacy. Students must perform fieldwork onsite at the CFE/Save the Sound office in New Haven on Fridays from 9:00-5:00. Parking is provided and the office is also convenient to the Hartford-New Haven commuter train line. The seminar will be conducted during this time period on alternating Fridays. Students are also required to perform a minimum of 2 additional hours of fieldwork per week outside of the office.
