FOUR ENVIRONMENTAL LAW SOCIETY STUDENTS ATTEND NAELS CONFERENCE
The Environmental Law Society (ELS) sent four student participants to the National Association of Environmental Law Societies' (NAELS) Annual Conference, held March 27 - 30, at the University of Maryland School of Law in Baltimore. Representing the Law School at the conference were Chris Saporita, ELS president; Drew Yoder, ELS vice president for clinical opportunities; Julie Solmer; and Dave Campbell. This year's conference, "Protecting our Planetary Backyard," focused on the array of challenges currently facing the environmental protection movement.
Saporita and Yoder participated in a panel on environmental law clinics that was based on research Saporita and Yoder completed last year. The panel discussion participants, and later the rest of the conference attendees, repeatedly referred to the "IU Report," which became a topic of conversation among students from law schools across the country. Saporita and Yoder hope their research will serve as a legacy and as an impetus to build such a clinic at IU.
At the NAELS Annual Meeting on March 29, Solmer was elected regional representative for Region 7 for the coming year, and Campbell was elected to one of the national co-chair positions, continuing the ELS's strong tradition of NAELS leadership. This past year, Saporita was an at-large representative and co-chair of the NAELS Clinical Education Initiative, and Daniel Wasserberg was the NAELS Region 7 representative.
The ELS may be reached via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. Additional information about the ELS is available at http://www.law.indiana.edu/students/groups/els/index.shtml. Additional information about NAELS is available at http://www.naels.org/.
