Meet the SEER

Environment, Energy and Natural Resources Law

As a law student, it can be difficult to find networking opportunities in particular fields of law. However, the ABA Section of Environment, Energy and Natural Resources Law (SEER) provides one of the best opportunities that I have ever experienced.

During my time at the 2015 SEER Fall Conference, I met numerous experienced lawyers and passionate law students in regards to this niche area of law.

As a law student, networking can be a tedious task, but it is extremely important. During the fall conference, and afterwards, I found that the members of SEER are more than willing to help law students attain their goals. Furthermore, if there is a question that a SEER member cannot answer themselves, they will point law students towards a fellow SEER member who can. That is the true spirit of the ABA SEER.

SEER provides its members with opportunities to enhance professional skills, stay on top of current developments, and dialogue in these substantive areas. SEER accomplishes this through its 34 substantive committees and numerous programs related to the areas of environment, energy, and natural resources law.

In addition to the benefits of an ABA membership, the ABA SEER offers unique membership benefits to law students. These benefits include:

  • Free Section membership;
  • Law student conference scholarships to help you attend section conferences;
  • Conference calls on career development;
  • Podcasts of archived calls that you can listen to while on-the-go;
  • and the opportunity to win cash prizes through participation in Section writing competitions. ‘
