The State Energy & Environmental Impact Center (“State Impact Center”) at the NYU School of Law is a nonpartisan academic think tank that supports State Attorneys General (“AGs”) in defending and promoting clean energy, climate and environmental laws and policies. The Center provides assistance to AGs in a number of ways, including:
- Providing legal assistance to interested attorneys general on specific administrative, judicial or legislative matters involving clean energy, climate change and environmental interests of regional and national significance.
- Working with interested attorneys general to support NYU Law Fellows who serve as special assistant attorneys general in state attorney general offices, focusing on clean energy, climate and environmental matters.
- Serving as a centralized public source of information for ongoing attorneys general initiatives and helping to enhance the public’s understanding of the importance of the clean energy, climate change and environmental matters that attorneys general are pursuing.
- Undertaking academic research, holding workshops, and issuing special reports that advance legal and policy analysis on clean energy, climate change and environmental issues.
