About the Center

The Coleman P. Burke Center for Environmental Law was launched in May 2019 with a $10 million gift from alumnus Coleman P. Burke (‘70). The Center supports interdisciplinary research and dialogue on major questions of environmental law and policy and provides a focal point for students interested in the study of environmental law through a broad and rigorous curriculum, experiential education, externships, scholarships, and directed study opportunities and provides a forum where those interested in environmental law and policy may engage in the discussion and analysis of environmental issues across disciplinary and political boundaries. The Center is directed by Jonathan H. Adler, the inaugural Johan Verheij Memorial Professor of Law.
