About Us


The Environmental Regulation Clinic aims to integrate environmental legal research with legal practice of the same field. The Clinic pays special notice to the connection between environmental problems and social justice issues, and also focuses on matters of comprehensive environmental policy.
The Clinic provides legal aid to organizations and communities which suffer from environmental problems. The legal aid includes representation in front of authorities, legal research with a practical orientation and court appearances. Additionally, the Clinic performes legal researches and writes legal opinions in service of various environmental organizations so they could be used to promote environmental issues.
In order to contact environmental organizations, the Clinic is assisted by "Life and Environment" - the Israeli union of environmental NGOs.
