NYU Environmental Law Journal is currently reviewing and accepting submissions for publication in Volume 28, to be published in the 2019-2020 year.
Each issue of the NYU Environmental Law Journal (ELJ) features discourse on both practical and theoretical issues in the field of environmental law and policy, as well as its intersections with other disciplines such as property, land use, constitutional, international, criminal, and corporate law. Since its inception, ELJ has become one of the leading environmental law journals in the nation.
ELJ publishes pieces that reveal and analyze the intersection of society, nature and science, and the field of environmental law has served as a catalyst for policy innovation and experimentation. The Journal offers the historical, sociological, ethical, institutional, and scientific insights necessary for scholars and practitioners to better understand the foundations of environmental law.
A non-exclusive list of recently featured topics includes: climate change legal doctrines, off-shore drilling, sustainability and energy policy, and environmental justice.
We are looking for scholarly articles that are around 30 pages in length, double spaced, but will consider shorter submissions. Articles can be submitted through Scholastica or by e-mail and must include a cover letter and curriculum vitae with each submission. Please note that ELJ has a policy against publishing external student notes.
