The Tulane Environmental & Energy Law Society (EELS) is one of the oldest and most active environmental law student groups in the nation. Our programming and events further Tulane University Law School's leadership in environmental law.
There is perhaps no better place to study the environment than in New Orleans, and EELS provides a forum for connecting Tulane Law students to the local, statewide, and national environmental communities. Most notably, since 1996, the Society has hosted the Tulane Law School Summit on Environmental Law & Policy, a nationwide, entirely student-run and not-for-profit conference that draws together private and public interest lawyers, scientists, community activists, and public citizens to discuss the day's most pressing environmental issues.
Additionally, EELS presents and sponsors myriad speakers; engages in community volunteer projects; organizes campus-renowned hiking, camping, canoeing, and bicycle trips; and produces The Environmental Law News, an annual alumni newsletter.
