About Us

The NYU Environmental Law Journal (ELJ) was founded in 1991 by students and alumni interested in furthering scholarship in the evolving field of environmental law. Since its inception, the Journal has become one of the leading environmental law journals in the nation.

Environmental law is an interdisciplinary field, with strong ties to science, public health, and social justice. ELJ offers the sociological, ethical, and scientific insights necessary for scholars and practitioners to better understand the foundations of environmental law. The Journal strives to lead the conversation on environmental law and justice issues by publishing pieces that push the boundaries of environmental law scholarship and providing a platform for a diverse range of voices and viewpoints. The Journal is committed to developing its staff members as both environmental thinkers and strong student editors, and the Journal works with its members to prepare student notes for publication.
