UC Law Environmental Journal


The editors welcome submissions of articles. Publication of reader responses to previously published articles and notes may also be considered. UCLEJ is committed to the inclusion of materials authored by, and issues important to, members of underrepresented groups and will act affirmatively to provide a forum for diverse and divergent viewpoints.

  • Articles: in the traditional law review style, we will be publishing full-length (25+ page) articles written on California’s efforts to lead the fight for progressive environmental law and policy, despite of, and perhaps due to, the new direction from the Federal government.
  • Essays: for a new take on law journals, we will be publishing shorter “essays” (5-15 pages) that hone in on specific policies, strategies, and commentaries on environmental law and policy. We urge practitioners to join us is describing their progressive work and detailing how it will change the landscape or conversation around the environment.
