PELR Publications

The Pace Environmental Law Review

Established in 1982, the Pace Environmental Law Review (PELR) was one of the first scholarly journals established in the then-new field of environmental law.  Affiliated with the highest-ranked Environmental Law Program in the nation, PELR is committed to publishing the most influential and innovative scholarship in the field of environmental law. PELR typically publishes at least three issues a year: the Symposium Issue, the Fall Issue, and the Spring Issue. Additionally, PELR hosts the Annual Pace-Haub Environmental Law Symposium and sponsors the Annual Professor John R. Nolon Student Writing Competition!

GreenLaw aims to provide information, context, and commentary on current events and developments in the field of environmental law. Authored by professors, scholars, practitioners, and students, GreenLaw covers a broad array of topics – ranging widely from energy usage, sustainability, environmental degradation, climate change, and water shortages to protection mechanisms, targeted initiatives, and new legal developments. In so doing, this blog aims to identify the oft-ignored interconnections between the most pressing environmental problems of our time, and ultimately, insight into possible solutions.

As a legal magazine, GreenLaw was published by the Center for Environmental Legal Studies beginning in 1997. Originally known as Environmentally Friendly, the publication changed its name to GreenLaw in 2001. During the summer of 2010, the decision was made to transform the publication into a blog in order to extend this environmental coverage to a larger audience and more easily communicate with those who share our concerns.
