This is your opportunity to help shape the Kentucky Environmental Leadership Institute. Inspired by the hundreds of law students and community leaders that KRC Director Tom FitzGerald has mentored over his career, KRC is making the training of community leaders and of legal professionals a program priority through the new institute.
We envision two tracks for the Institute. One is to provide educational and training opportunities for legal professionals to ensure the next generation of litigators are equipped with the resources to handle the toughest of environmental cases, and to broaden the base of current practitioners who are willing and equipped to take on environmental cases in the public interest. The other is to provide educational and training opportunities to empower citizens to better advocate for the health and vitality of their communities.
This survey is designed for community advocates. Your insight and opinions will help us gauge the needs and interests so that we can craft environmental justice and environmental health training programs to meet those needs.
