Environmental Law Section Classroom Project
We are delighted to invite you to participate in the Environmental Law
Section's "Classroom Project." As lawyers, we are especially equipped to teach
students about what we do. Without question, environmental issues are very hot
This Project became a reality under the leadership of Peter
Casper, New York State Thruway Authority, and the contributions of Aliza
Cinamon, Proskauer Rose LLP, New York; Bridget Lee, Sive Paget & Riesel, New
York; Joseph Mouallem, Carter Ledyard & Milburn, New York; and Brody Smith,
Bond Schoeneck & King, Syracuse.
These capable attorneys have compiled teaching materials on
environmental topics from various sources. As you navigate this site, you will
see that the materials are organized by topic within each grade level. Please
take some time to browse through these materials - they are full of information
and fun ideas. And when you do go into the classroom, tell us afterward how it
This site will continue to evolve and grow. We will update it
frequently by adding new lesson plans and amending or removing lesson plans
based upon your feedback. If you create your own materials, feel free to
forward them to us, and we will be sure to post them for others to use.
May you have many rewarding teachable moments!
