Student Summer Placements
Students in the environmental and natural resources law program at the S.J.

Four SJQ students shared their experiences this summer working with government agencies and nonprofit organizations.
The Wallace Stegner Center depends on donors to support our extensive programs and activities. These include student competitions and scholarships, the annual symposium, lectures, the green bag series, and the Law & Policy Program and the Environmental Dispute Resolution Program. Although several generous foundations and corporations have provided the Stegner Center with program funding, we also rely heavily upon the support of individuals. If you appreciate the opportunities afforded our student moot court team members or scholarship recipients, or if you enjoy attending our yearly programs, or if you appreciate the positive impact of the EDR and research programs, we would greatly appreciate hearing from you. Donations can be sent to the Wallace Stegner Center, S.J. Quinney College of Law, 383 South University Street, Salt Lake City, Utah 84112, or can be made online here.
