Roundtable Discussions with Environmental Law Practitioners

This semester, the Environmental Law Society (ELS) is organizing a series of roundtable discussions with environmental law practitioners.  In order to facilitate an active discussion, we have decided to limit each roundtable discussion to 12 participants. These sessions will offer an excellent opportunity to network with practicing attorneys and gain a better understanding of the opportunities available for students interested in pursuing a career in environmental law.

The schedule of roundtables is as follows (all roundtables will be held from 12-1pm in rooms TBA):

Tuesday, October 12 -- Natural Resources Defense Council
Tuesday, October 26 -- Illinois Pollution Control Board
Tuesday, November 9 -- Baker and McKenzie
Date TBA - Office of the Illinois Attorney General

To sign-up for a Roundtable, just go to TWEN on Westlaw, join the "Environmental Law Society" group, and check out the Roundtable Discussions with Environmental Law Practitioners sign-up sheet.
