ENR Interdisciplinary Projects & Fellows Program
To further the ENR Program's mission of "engaging the law to support sustainability on earth," the Program has developed theme-based projects that draw upon existing faculty strengths and provide synergistic opportunities for promoting student experience, providing service to the community, reaching out to diverse communities, bringing global content to the curriculum, and bringing intellectual energy to bear on some of the most challenging and cutting-edge environmental issues of our day. The ENR's seven interdisciplinary projects are
In each of these projects, we take a wide perspective on the issues and integrate traditional course work with more specialized study.
Law students work to advance each of these projects through ENR's Fellows Program. Each academic year, several second and third year students are appointed as Fellows and are charged with advancing various aspects of the program and the six interdisciplinary projects through research, event planning, and public outreach.
Each year, the UO ENR Program offers fellowships to about 20 students through an application process. Through project development work and substantive research and writing, law student fellows take on real- world environmental problems.
All fellowship appointments are for one year. A fellow may re-apply in subsequent years, but re-appointment is not automatic.
THE INTERDISCIPLINARY PROJECTS FELLOWSHIPS ENR's interdisciplinary projects enable law students to develop practical expertise. Every ENR fellowship is associated with one of these projects.
