In recent years, the environmental law community has begun to reckon with the lack of diversity within the profession, especially among the government agencies, nongovernmental organizations, and law firms that make up the field’s "traditional" core. This panel will discuss challenges faced and efforts made to increase the diversity of the environmental law field, drawing from the perspectives of legal practitioners, recruiters, and educators.”
