Internships will concentrate on energy and environmental policy. In addition, CEEL's Executive Director and Professor-in-Residence, Joseph MacDougald, will offer a seminar in which students can take part. The seminar will focus on issues under consideration in the current legislative session.
DEEP Commissioner Daniel C. Esty was quoted as saying in the December 15th shorelineplus.com article, “DEEP and UConn announce new legal internship program”: “Cooperation between the legislative and executive branches and the academic community in developing energy and environmental policy is a perfect fit for the direction of our department and the needs of our state. We look forward to having highly motivated UConn law students joining DEEP's effort to make Connecticut a national success story for building a prosperous and sustainable economy on a foundation of cleaner and cheaper energy.”
Jeremy Paul, Dean of the University of Connecticut School of Law was quoted as saying: “We are excited and grateful to be cooperating with the DEEP and the state legislature in the formulation of this new program. We recognize that neither in academia nor in industry can we afford any longer to separate the study of energy law and policy from environmental research and learning about natural resources.”
As a means of preparing the next generation of attorneys, as well as legislators, the Center for Energy and Environmental Law was recently launched, and seeks to balance technological advancements with sustainable methods, and find practical and workable applications and solutions. Students will benefit greatly from hands on involvement with current, real world issues and learn firsthand the impact both DEEP and the Environment Committee has in the world.
In response to ever increasing global demands for energy, the Center for Energy and Environmental Law (CEEL) was created. CEEL seeks to promote teaching as well as learning, and provides tools with which to analyze public policy in energy and environmental law in areas including renewable energy resources, nuclear energy and carbon sequestration, energy and carbon markets, and environmental impacts of energy production and use.
