    coal mining companies operating in Kentucky He argued recently in Franklin Circuit Court for a judge to allow the environmental groups to intervene in the State s enforcement case against those companies a motion which the judge ultimately granted Harrison said the Clinic has given him real world experience in every aspect of litigation investigation working with clients drafting documents and arguing in court It s the students at the Clinic who are ultimately responsible for doing all the work on a case and keeping up with everything As a result we really learn the cases inside and out which helps so much when arguing in court Harrison also benefited from working directly with highly skilled faculty advisors at the Clinic who are widely considered to be leading experts nationally on the Clean Water Act He singled out Professor Karl Coplan who wrote the chapter on citizen suits in the Environmental Law Practice Guide Professor Daniel Estrin Harrison s Supervising Attorney at the Clinic noted law school graduates who go to work for law firms often wait five or more years to get this type of experience after they pass a bar exam For a law student to argue to a court in any case much less such important and high profile cases as these is an invaluable experience the student will carry for the rest of his career From his experience at the Clinic Harrison said I ve learned that I definitely want to be litigating after I graduate from law school That s really what excites me and what I m passionate about His dream job he said would be litigating Clean Water Act issues for a public interest group in southern Appalachia ideally relating to mountaintop removal coal mining There is little public awareness of the problems
