The Environmental Law Society (ELS) is the student-run organization for future environmental lawyers and all law students interested in environmental issues.

ELS-sponsored programs include our issue-focused panels, featuring prominent environmental lawyers and scholars; legal projects in which we partner with both local and national environmental organizations to provide research assistance; hiking and camping trips in the Hudson River Valley; social events; and community service events. We are also actively involved in campus climate change initiatives and in the larger New York environmental community. To see the full range of our activities, click on the Events link.
