Opportunities with CLA Partners and Friends
Maryland Sea Grant Legal Fellow
Maryland Sea Grant (MDSG) and the Agriculture Law Education Initiative (ALEI) are seeking a Legal Fellow to provide legal research, writing, and educational assistance for these two institutions. This is an excellent opportunity to gain experience with a variety of legal, policy, and regulatory matters concerning aquaculture, environmental compliance, and land use policy, including the impacts of sea-level rise on coastal communities and governmental responses to the changing landscape. The fellowship serves to increase the capacity of local, state, and federal government agencies as well as non-governmental partners and coastal industries in Maryland, and to promote integration of a range of perspectives into problem-solving for Maryland to provide more inclusive solutions and facilitate training around and development of coastal laws and policies.
