Emory Public Interest Committee (EPIC)

EPIC is a student-run organization at Emory Law that seeks to provide opportunities for students to learn about and participate in public interest activities. The organization provides summer grants for students working in public interest positions. Grant recipients who have chosen to work in the environmental field have volunteered at the Upper Chattahoochee Riverkeeper, the Turner Environmental Law Clinic and the National Wildlife Federation.
