Question 4

Where do you see the practice area today and where do you see it in the future?

Environmental law is a field of law in its infancy. As environmental consciousness expands and the consequences of on-going and legacy pollution begin to be felt the public will demand knowledgeable practitioners to defend the rights of those affected as well as the environment. If a law student’s purpose is to look for a field with growing liability, then all roads lead to environmental law.
