Environmental issues do not recognize political boundaries, nor do they respect territorial integrity. Attempts to confront and resolve global and transboundary environmental problems have created the need for a legal forum to provide analyses of these issues. Georgetown students created GELR to meet this need.

Our publication spans a broad range of environmental issues, such as climate change; renewable energy; administrative law; criminal law; regional and comparative issues; and the intersection of the environment and trade, human rights, security, and technology.
