The Community Environmental Law Clinic
Are you part of a group interested in learning more about environmental law? Does your community face an environmental challenge and need advice?
ECELAW prides itself on being closely integrated with its surrounding communities. The needs of the communities we live and work in shape the support we provide. When there is an environmental concern to address, we bring legal resources to the table by sharing information, providing legal advice and, when required, pursuing a legal solution.
One of the ways we support Atlantic Canadian communities is through our travelling environmental law clinics. Our goal is to make the law accessible by sharing our legal expertise to inform, empower, and connect Atlantic Canadians so that we can all affect change that strengthens our communities and protects our environment.
“Education is the most powerful weapon you can use to change the world”
Let us know how we can help your community learn more about environmental law through our interactive and participatory clinic program. At ECELAW we believe that increasing awareness and understanding is the first step to accessing justice.
