The Environmental Crimes Section (ECS) prosecutes knowing violations of the nation’s pollution prevention and wildlife protection laws and is looking for highly qualified law students to serve as externs during the spring of 2012. ECS is a section within the Environment and Natural Resources Division of the U.S. Department of Justice.
The ECS case load ranges from illegal “rip and run” asbestos abatements to coral smuggling to oil pollution by cargo vessels to a local scheme to grossly violate fishing quotas. The section’s forty prosecutors work on cases across the United States and as far away as American Samoa. Law clerks assist prosecutors with all phases of criminal investigations and criminal litigation. This work involves environmental law, criminal law, and constitutional aspects of criminal procedure.

The Environmental Law Institute (ELI) announces its annual fellowship for a recent law school graduate.
The Institute: ELI envisions a healthy environment, prosperous economies, and vibrant communities founded on just law and policy. To this end, we develop creative and practical law and policy solutions to enable leaders across borders and sectors to achieve environmental, social, and economic progress. ELI builds the skills and capacity of tomorrow’s leaders and institutions; researches and analyzes complex, pressing environmental challenges; promotes and disseminates the best thinking through dialogue and print and electronic media; and convenes people with diverse perspectives to enhance understanding through debate. ELI works with partners across the United States and around the world. We are independent and non-partisan.
The Position: The law fellowship program is a longstanding component of ELI’s Research and Policy Division. The law fellow works closely with ELI attorneys and other professionals, including ELI’s international partners, to advance environmental protection by analyzing existing legal tools, developing new ones, and crafting innovative approaches to implementation. This may require considering how environmental protection is affected by other laws and policies that are related to environmental laws—e.g., those governing energy, taxation, and land use. Assignments include legal research and writing tasks across all ELI project areas, and the law fellow may be asked to make public presentations and assist in facilitating training activities. The law fellow is expected to assume significant responsibility.
