Capstone Course 

The Turner Environmental Law Clinic provides important pro bono representation to individuals, community groups, and non-profit organizations that seek to protect and restore the natural environment and promote environmental justice. Through its work, the Clinic offers students an intense, hands-on introduction to environmental law and trains the next generation of environmental attorneys.

Interdisciplinary Opportunities

Students may take a limited number of environmental classes in other departments of Emory University, including in Emory College of Department of Environmental Sciences and Rollins School of Public Health Department of Environmental Health.

Students particularly interested in the intersection of environmental law and public health may earn joint Juris Doctor (JD) and Master of Public Health (MPH) degrees.

Students interested in multi-disciplinary research opportunities to create innovative solutions for sustainability and resilience challenges worldwide may also engage with Emory’s Resilience and Sustainability Collaboratory (RSC). The RSC generates novel approaches to addressing complex and interrelated human and environmental issues with a focus on climate change, health disparities, and social & racial justice.
