Environmental Law Club



The Environmental Law Club is made up of students interested in learning about environmental issues and exploring opportunities in environmental law. We host social events that allow students to connect with their like-minded peers, as well as educational seminars that seek to inform them about environmental legal issues and the practice of environmental law. In doing so, we strive to promote a vibrant environmental consciousness at the Faculty of Law.

See below for a list of this year’s events and external resources. We kindly welcome new members and are always receptive to event suggestions!
