How do I start a Career in Environmental Law?

I am very curious about a Career in Environmental Law. Unfortunately, it is very difficult to find information about What Environmental Law actually is. Most pages on the internet just talk about How to get into Environmental Law. While I was searching for reliable information about a Career in Environmental Law, I came across this amazing page: 

Richa Tyagi's overview!

Richa Tyagi invested 3 years & 11 months in Environmental Law. Richa Tyagi has worked in Environmental Law as Senior Program Officer in WWF, India. In Richa Tyagi's own words, this is how Richa Tyagi got into Environmental Law: "After completing a degree in Law, I interned with WWF India for two months. While working with them, I realised this was a field where I wanted to work for the rest of my life. Even since I have been working with WWF India as an Environmental Lawyer." 

Career Video on Environmental Law

In a video, Richa Tyagi has talked about various aspects of a Career in Environmental Law. Richa Tyagi started by explaining Environmental Law as: "Environmental law, also known as environmental and natural resources law, is a collective term describing the network of treaties, statutes, regulations, common and customary laws addressing the effects of human activity on the natural environment. The core environmental law regimes address environmental pollution. A related but distinct set of regulatory regimes, now strongly influenced by environmental legal principles, focus on the management of specific natural resources, such as forests, minerals, or fisheries." It was a very interesting video and I enjoyed watching it.

In this video Education was discussed as theoretical topics needed to excel at Environmental Law, and not as Qualifications needed to enter Environmental Law. Richa Tyagi touches upon these in the Education section of the Video:

Richa Tyagi then explains why these Skills are essential for a Career in Environmental Law:

And, Richa Tyagi believes that one needs to prepare for following Challenges of a Career in Environmental Law:
  • Less Money
