The Environmental Advocacy Project

The Environmental Advocacy Project brings together professors, students, and community activists to aid environmental causes through legal research, counseling, and representation.  While EAP projects vary as widely as the environmental interests of the professors and students who develop them, many focus on Boston’s urban environment, allowing students to have direct contact with the environmental interests they serve.
