Natural Resource Use & Management Clinic
The Natural Resource Use and Management Clinic gives law students the opportunity to gain practical experience in the law, policy, and science governing western natural resources. In particular, the Clinic focuses on multi-stakeholder, collaborative solutions to natural resource challenges, and works to assist community members otherwise unable to access legal representation.
In working to promote science and equity based natural resource law and policy, Clinic students encounter matters related to water rights and quality, endangered species, public lands, climate change, and tribal lands and resources. In support of this mission, the Clinic works with the Natural Resource Users Law & Policy Center, as well as Cooperative Extension, both housed at the University of Arizona.
