Environmental Law Project      

Announcing ELP’s new logo! Congratulations to 3L Peter Wu on creating the winning design.



 About ELP:

  1. We host speakers and panels on topics relating to environmental law for the law school community.
  2. Each semester, we participate in the regulatory rule-making process by commenting on a rule recently proposed by a federal administrative agency, such as the EPA. ELP has a history of success in being cited to by federal agencies in final rule-makings. 
  3. We perform pro bono legal research and analysis for local and national non-profits and environmental advocacy groups.  The pro bono projects are conducted on a rolling basis throughout the year.
  4. Our members are passionate about engaging in environmental justice outside of the law school.  ELP hosts events ranging from volunteering to help clean up a local waterway, to addressing the legal problems faced by local community gardeners.
  5. We host a variety of social events for our members to help build a community of students interested in environmental law.
  6. Finally, we serve as a conduit for any environmental activities at Penn.  We have worked with the Energy Club and the Animal Law Project, and are working to build a community of environmentally minded people.  We endeavor to provide information to interested members of the Penn community about academic and career opportunities in the realm of environmental law.
