UCLA School of Law’s Emmett Institute on Climate Change and the Environment is now accepting applications for the UCLA Emmett/Frankel and Shapiro Fellowships in Environmental Law and Policy for the academic years 2021-2023. These fellowships are full-time, two-year academic positions beginning in the summer of 2021. The positions involve research and writing in the law and policy of climate change and the environment; teaching; and assisting with Institute projects such as conferences and workshops.

The Emmett Institute is among the leading environmental law programs in the country, with faculty members renowned for their public service, teaching excellence, and scholarship in state, federal, and international law. The Emmett Institute educates future leaders and develops solutions to urgent environmental and environmental justice challenges. Through groundbreaking research and public interest initiatives, the Emmett Institute helps shape climate change and environmental law and policy in California, the United States, and jurisdictions around the world.

Fellows work on issues relating to environmental law and policy and will generate policy-oriented publications and other products for the Institute, in collaboration with other UCLA Law faculty. Fellows typically work on projects related to climate change, natural resource conservation, environmental justice, pollution control, land use, international environmental governance, and other topics related to environmental law and policy. Fellows also assist the Institute’s Executive Directors with projects that advance the Institute’s work, including by organizing conferences, workshops, public education and outreach efforts, and other events. In addition to these responsibilities, which will continue year-round, Fellows sometimes take on teaching responsibilities.

Candidates should possess a J.D. earned within the past several years or expected before June 30, 2021; a strong academic record; excellent analytical and writing skills; and demonstrated interest and background in environmental law and policy. Previous experience in law practice or clinical instruction is helpful but not necessary.
