Environmental Law Society

Reading Group

ELS is happy to host the Environmental Justice Reading Group, a relaxed space to discuss and learn more about some of the major issues at the intersection of law, society, and the environment. Throughout the spring 2021 semester, we’ll (virtually) meet to discuss environmental justice in connection with areas such as health disparities and the COVID crisis, housing and transportation, and agriculture and animals.


We encourage everyone with an interest — even in just a single week’s topic — to attend. No prior knowledge of environmental law is expected, and no reading is necessary! We’ll circulate (and link here) a variety of suggested readings, videos, and/or podcasts for each session, but the aim is to learn from each other and to encourage new perspectives and new developments. Look out for updates here, on coases, and on the Greenlist.


Interested in guiding a discussion, proposing a topic, or otherwise helping keep the group running? Reach out to one of our board members they’ll get you looped in!
