Our Mission

Western Resources Legal Center provides top law students an opportunity to develop practical legal skills and specific knowledge of natural resources and environmental laws by assisting with the legal representation of farmers, ranchers, miners, foresters, resource developers and other natural resource dependent entities.

Students gain an understanding of the litigation process and how laws impact the day to day operations of natural resource dependent businesses. Students also experience a more profound educational experience by personally observing how laws and litigation impact businesses, the economy, and local communities.
