The Georgetown Environmental Law Review (GELR) offers members an opportunity to develop their writing and editing skills and to take valuable steps toward future employment in a variety of legal fields. GELR publishes thought-provoking commentary and analysis of both international and domestic environmental law.
First-year staff members edit articles and citations, collect sources, and conduct preemption checks. Second-year members select and edit articles and provide feedback to first-year staff members.
All GELR members write a student note on the topic of their choosing. Notes also allow students to delve into a specific area of law that interests them. GELR publishes three student notes per issue, which are often cited by legal scholars.
Members also draft one short-form article for GELR Online each year. GELR is part of the Environmental Law Review Syndicate. ELRS is a collaborative effort of the nation’s leading environmental law journals. It aims to provide an outlet for student scholarship and foster dialogue between schools. This unique partnership boosts your development and the relationship between our community of environmental lawyers and scholars.
