Careers in Environmental Law Speaker Series
HELI offers a speaker series focusing on careers in environmental law. This speaker series brings environmental practitioners from a wide range of backgrounds to Iowa Law for lunchtime presentations that explore the myriad ways that environmental lawyers contribute to environmental protection, natural resource conservation, and clean energy efforts.
The speaker series includes public service and public interest attorneys, as well as attorneys in private practice and within corporations. The practice areas encompass new areas of environmental law, such as renewable energy and sustainability programs, as well as more traditional compliance counseling and enforcement practices.

The panel discussions are moderated by members of Iowa's distinguished and extensive environmental and sustainability faculty, staff and researchers. The discussions include presentations by academics, practitioners, and policy makers. Many of the events and panels are presented in conjunction with classroom discussions.
