The Ecojustice Environmental Law Clinic at the University of Ottawa is the nation's first public interest environmental law and policy clinic.
The Ecojustice Environmental Law Clinic at the University of Ottawa is the world’s first interdisciplinary public interest environmental law clinic.
The Ecojustice Environmental Law Clinic at the University of Ottawa (formerly, the uOttawa-Ecojustice Environmental Law Clinic) provides an empowering learning environment where students earn course credits as they assist Ecojustice lawyers and scientists in providing strategic advice and pro bono legal counsel to groups across the country. Each semester, 15 students assist in legal education and community outreach, summary legal advice, law reform assistance and submissions to Parliament. In this setting, practical education becomes genuine impact for the environment, as students take on supervised work on active legal cases that represent community members and hold governments and other organizations accountable to environmental laws.
