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.

The audience we reach is nearly as broad as the subject matter we publish. Each publication contains timely information designed for the practitioner, policymaker, scholar, and student of environmental law.
