The New York City Environmental Law Leadership Institute (NYCELLI) is inviting applications for its 2010 class.
NYCELLI is an annual seminar for a select group of new environmental attorneys from private, government, and non-profit practice who are committed to leadership in the field and to making a positive contribution to the City’s environment. The institute is designed to inform, equip and inspire attorneys in the beginning of their careers to take on key roles in the work to improve the quality of New York’s City’s environment and the health of its residents. Participants explore the legal landscape, history and policies behind the environmental challenges confronting the City and its residents. The institute introduces participants to the City’s community of environmental lawyers, encourages innovation and collaboration, and builds a growing network of distinguished alumni.
The institute will commence with an opening reception on Thursday, February 4, 2010, and classes will meet every other Thursday for eight meetings, beginning February 11 and ending on May 20. Applications are due by 5:00pm Monday, January 4, 2010. For more information and to apply, please visit http://www.nycelli.org.
