The Water Law Fellows work on the most pressing water law reform issues of the day under the guidance of the GWC and in partnership with leaders from the non-profit, government, and private sectors. The intensive two-year program immerses Water Law Fellows in the real world challenges of water law and policy. They address critical issues affecting western watersheds, conduct reform-oriented research, and interact with public and private sector leaders to inform policy-making. The Fellows actively engage in water law reform in the public interest and hone their leadership, communication, advocacy, and research skills. The overarching objective is to create a matchless educational and mentoring experience that will prepare the Fellows to become leaders in the field.
