Hey, I'd love to be a green lawyer. I'm graduating in May. Too bad no one is hiring.

Interesting that I came across this message just now because I am currently working to organize a group of Washington attorneys to discuss what, if any, is the lawyer's role in the sustainability movement. There has been a similar discussion happening in Oregon. I am very interested in hearing about how you have addressed issues of sustainability in your practice. I believe that there is a real potential for lawyers to be drivers, and not just facilitators of sustainability. It would be great to have input from people who are actually practicing "green lawyering" with their business clients.

This is all very timely. I practice outside Phila Pa. Next week I am taking the LEED NC exam. This is an area in which I am greatly interested. I am not sure exactly how to intergrate this into my practice. I am aware of the Portland group and I would love to discuss ideas with people closer to home.

At our firm we have had the privilege of working with many "green" clients. One way that we aid these clients is by developing speaking events and make introductions to our other like minded clients for cross branding opportunities. Since our firm works in the entertainment law field, often also provide a music band to play as well.

Great blog!

If the economics don't work, recycling efforts won't either.
Http://LivePaths.com blogs about innovative entrepreneurs that make money selling recycled items, provide green services or help us reduce our dependency on non renewable resources.
These includes some very cool Green online ventures, great new technologies, startups and investments opportunities.

Green lawyering: Hello, I just discovered this board. I'm a Chicago attorney with a "green" approach to my law practice (TSAMIS LAW FIRM). I also own a "green" cleaning company called Snappy Maids. I'm interested in connecting with other like-minded legal professionals.

In Massachusetts, several lawyers got together through the Mass. Bar Association and set up a sustainability task force-- we launched an Eco-Challenge in September 2007. About 100 firms, attorneys or organizations signed the MBA Lawyers Environmental Pledge to join the Eco-Challenge and to comply with a list of green guidelines we drafted for the office. www.massbar.org/ecochallenge. There are also Pledge Partners outside of traditional law firms and the state of Massachusetts.
In celebration of Earth Day 2009, we released our latest Green Guidelines, this time with a focus on landscape management. The guidelines promote replacing traditional lawns with natural landscaping and native plants, or implementing measures to reduce pollution and improve soil health when caring for a traditional lawn.
We also implemented a cell phone recycling program in conjunction with Verizon Wireless’ HopeLine program (www.verizonwireless.com/hopeline) on Feb. 2, 2009. Working and broken cell phones, batteries and accessories from all service providers are accepted at one of three collection boxes in Boston and Springfield. The proceeds from New England cell phone collections are directed toward organizations that work to prevent domestic violence and assist survivors through purchasing and donating refurbished phones with airtime or paying for special projects.
We have been in touch with attorneys in Oregon and Washington and with the ABA regarding our initiatives.
This blog is a great idea!

Looking for a green attorney.

Local Wendeys states that the corporare policy is that all meals me dilivered in bag. I always request no bags. This angers the staff.
Tonight I was informed that if I did not accept the fact policy was all food must be delivered is a Wendy's bag then I should bring my own used Wendey's bag. Also stated that from now on I must accept the bag or not be served. This is from a manager who spoke other than english.
Anyone interested in a green lawsuit?
