NEDC LogoPurpose and History

NEDC was established by a group of professors, law students and attorney alumni at Lewis and Clark Law School in 1969. NEDC is an independent, non-profit organization working to protect the environment and natural resources of the Pacific Northwest. We provide legal support to individuals and grassroots organizations with environmental concerns, and engage in litigation independently or in conjunction with other environmental groups. NEDC also provides valuable hands-on experience for students seeking to enhance their education in environmental law.  More about NEDC.
