The California Environmental Legislation & Policy Clinic provides a hands-on opportunity for UCLA Law students to engage with state senators and assembly members, legislative staffers, advocates, and stakeholders on cutting-edge environmental issues. We have worked closely with elected officials in Southern California including State Senator Ben Allen, Assemblymember Eduardo Garcia, former Speaker of the Assembly Anthony Rendon, State Senator Henry Stern, and U.S. Rep. (and then-State Senator) Sydney Kamlager-Dove.

Services Provided

Students have informed successful legislative efforts related to wildfire, groundwater, single-use plastics, and extreme heat.

Mission and Goals

Through their clinical work, students make valuable connections with environmental advocates, policy experts, and the legislative staffers with whom they collaborate.
