Friends of Land Air Water is a non-profit organization that cosponsors (along with the student group Land Air Water) the annual Public Interest Environmental Law Conference at University of Oregon School of Law in Eugene, Oregon. Friends of Land Air Water is composed of graduates of the University of Oregon School of Law who are now practicing environmental attorneys in Oregon. Many of the organization’s board are former Land Air Water co-directors and PIELC co-directors. Because of their experience, they also provide Land Air Water with a wealth of historical information and institutional memory.
Friends of Land Air Water also operates an annual Public Interest Environmental Law Summer Stipend Program, which awards stipends to law students to work in public interest environmental law positions. Students receiving grants have worked for organizations all over the world, from as nearby as the Klamath-Siskiyou Wildlands Center in Williams OR, to Foundation La Era Agricola in Venezuela, and the United Nations in Geneva, Switzerland.
