Washington Journal of Environmental Law & Policy
Mission & History
The Washington Journal of Environmental Law & Policy publishes legal scholarship on environmental affairs important to the Pacific Northwest region and beyond. By drawing expertise from across the disciplines, the Journal will promote the investigation of current environmental law and proposed solutions for the future.
WJELP was founded in the Spring of 2009 by UWLS students under the guidance of Professor Gregory Hicks ,
Professor William Rodgers
and Dean Kellye Testy. The 2010 – 2011 Editorial Board was selected by Professor Hicks and Rodgers to launch the journal and produce its forthcoming first issue in May 2011. Drawing off the faculty and graduate students at
the UW College of the Environment, this peer-reviewed Journal was founded to provide forum for legal and policy analysis rooted firmly in scientific context and expressed in a clear and useful manner.
