When the Turner Environmental Law Clinic was launched 20 years ago, the public interest law community in Georgia was quite small. The Clinic's dual mission — to assist environmental nonprofits with their visions and to create top-tier public interest attorneys — has proven to be very successful for the Clinic and for the community. Today, the Clinic has an outsized impact, leveraging its resources wisely to ensure that environmental groups work together, that all voices are heard, and that natural resources are protected.
