Environmental Law

Postby Dr. Dre » Tue Feb 19, 2013 11:30 pm

I want to do environmental law (hereinafter EL). What schools are best for EL (e.g., programs dedicated to EL, job placement in EL related positions, etc). What are the best places to work in environmental law. Is it in private practice, the gov't, or non-profits? I want to do something in the realm of environmental justice. My stats are 3.7/ 167; African American; K-JD; strong letters of rec; nice, but not great, softs; first generation college student.

My plans are to fight for minority communities who are victims of pollution (blacks in the south), pesticides (farm workers), and toxic sites.

You should have great opportunities. Maybe even Harvard or Stanford or Yale. They will open up the most doors for you in most fields. And good screen name/avatar. I pray that your cycle is the opposite of "Fuck Wit Dre Day (And Everybody's Celebrating)."

But you're an African-American male.

You have a great shot, there aren't many other AA's applying with numbers like yours. Please do apply!

I only worry bc of all the posts I've read on TLS on how competitive HYS is, even if URM.
