Question 4

Why do you think it is important to explore this practice area?

Environmental law is regularly listed by the American and California Bar Associations as one of the top five growth areas of practice. Particularly in Southern California, with its huge amounts of litigation in real estate and cross-border trade, there are many opportunities for specialists in this field. Our graduates have obtained positions with the federal government, state attorney general, county counsel, city attorneys, public interest organizations, and private business.
