Welcome!


The Yale Environmental Law Association (YELA) seeks to create community among YLS students interested in the environment. We welcome everyone to join us, irrespective of prior environmental background or experience. In 2019-2020, we plan to offer a variety of programming. We invite new members be involved as much or as minimally as they'd like. 

 

Mission


Throughout its history, Yale Law School has served as a center for groundbreaking environmental thinking.  The Yale Environmental Law Association (YELA) aims to build on this legacy by drawing attention to all aspects of environmental law and related fields, through YLS community events, speakers and reading groups, and opportunties to connect and collaborate with other campus groups, as well as by working to promote sustainability in the use of law school facilities. YELA places special emphasis on the interdisciplinary, multifaceted character of environmental law and its relevance to a wide range of legal and policy issues.
