Environmental Law and Policy Annual Review
The Environmental Law and Policy Annual Review (ELPAR) is a special issue of the Environmental Law Reporter (ELR) , published in collaboration with the Vanderbilt University Law School (VULS) and the Environmental Law Institute (ELI) in Washington, DC. Each year, Vanderbilt Law students work with an expert advisory committee and senior staff from ELI to identify the year’s best academic articles that present legal and policy solutions to pressing environmental problems. The result is a one issue, student-edited volume that includes condensed versions of the selected articles, along with commentaries from leading experts from the academy, law firms, business, government and non-governmental organizations.
In conjunction with the publication, ELI and Vanderbilt co-sponsor an annual conference at which the authors of the articles and comments present their ideas and views to an audience that includes business, government (federal, state, and local), think tank, and non-profit representatives.
