UCLA School of Law’s Emmett/Frankel Fellowship in Environmental Law and Policy

UCLA School of Law’s Emmett Center on Climate Change and the Environment and Environmental Law Center are now accepting
applications for the UCLA Emmett/Frankel Fellowship in Environmental Law and Policy for the academic years 2012-2014. This fellowship is a full-time, two-year faculty position (approximately August 2012 through July 2014). The position involves policy and legal research and writing, assisting with organizing projects such as conferences and workshops, and teaching.

The Emmett Center on Climate Change and the Environment and the Evan Frankel Environmental Law and Policy Program are dedicated to creating and advancing law and policy solutions to the climate change crisis and other environmental challenges, and to training the next generation of leaders to address these issues. The programs foster informed debate and analysis to educate the public, policymakers, business leaders, and others on critical environmental issues.

The Fellow will further the work of the Programs by pursuing research on issues relating to environmental law and policy, including climate change law and policy, and by generating policy-oriented written work to be published through the Frankel Program, the Emmett Center, and other venues such as law journals. The Fellow will also assist the Centers’ Executive Directors with projects relating to the Programs’ work, including organizing conferences and other events, and public education and outreach efforts. In addition to these
responsibilities, which will continue year-round, the Fellow will take on teaching responsibilities in environmental law topics.

Candidates should possess a J.D. (or equivalent law degree), earned within the past several years or expected at the end of spring 2012; a strong academic record; excellent analytical and writing skills; and demonstrated interest and background in environmental law or policy. Previous experience in law practice or clinical instruction is preferred but not a necessary qualification. The salary is
anticipated to be approximately $58,000 per year plus a competitive benefits package.

Applicants should apply BY EMAIL ONLY to Jeanne Fontenot at
envirolaw@law.ucla.edu. Please submit a letter discussing
qualifications and interests, a resume, a law school transcript, and contact information for three references. The subject line of your email should read “Environmental Fellow Application.”

Application deadline is May 9, 2012.
