Mission: The UCLA Journal of Environmental Law and Policy, known informally as JELP, produces a high-quality biannual journal on cutting-edge environmental legal and policy matters. In continuous publication since 1980, JELP is entirely run and produced by the students of UCLA School of Law. Articles and comments published in JELP are written by leading scholars and practitioners throughout the country and often the world, and by students focusing on environmental law at UCLA.
JELP enjoys a strong partnership with the Emmett Institute on Climate Change and the Environment, often in the form of publishing special symposia issues of the Journal. Together with the Environmental Law Society, JELP assists in hosting speakers and events that complement the environmental curriculum at UCLA School of Law and fosters the continued growth of the vibrant environmental community at UCLA.
