Seattle Journal of Environmental Law

The Seattle Journal of Environmental Law is a student-run online publication that was approved for full accreditation status and is now operating as an official law school publication as of the 2014-2015 academic year. The Journal's online platform offers authors a rapid yet thorough editorial process that facilitates participation in current debates in environmental law and policy. By promoting interdisciplinary discussions on urgent environmental issues, SJEL's scholarship explores the importance of environmental protections in business, international transactions, land use, and a variety of other legal topics.

In complement, the Journal, through its Writing Program, affords student members excellent opportunities to improve their research and writing skills. Each staff editor is carefully paired with a member of the Editorial Board who serves as the primary editor for the staff editor throughout the writing and editing process, providing enriching educational and mentoring experiences to both the staff editor and the primary editor.

SJEL is in the process of migrating from its old home at www.sjel.org to a new, university backed Digital Commons URL, which should be completed by the end of the 2014-2015 academic year. Stay tuned for more news and updates regarding the web migration.
