The Energy and Environmental Law Society, founded to enable students to become involved in ongoing energy and environmental issues and programs, has organized and hosted the National Association of Environmental Law Societies Conference, bringing to light Tulane Law School's emergence as a leader in the study of environmental law. Since 1996, the Society has co-hosted, with Tulane's Insitute for Environmental Law & Policy, a state-wide public interest environmental conference which draws lawyers, scientists, community activists, and public citizens to discuss Louisiana's pressing environmental concerns. The Society has presented speakers on toxic torts, wildlife preservation, wetlands, environmental enforcement, national legislative proposals, and international environmental issues. The Society also organizes camping, canoeing, and bicycle trips, as well as other field trips to unique natural areas, initiated and maintains the law school's recycling program, and produces an environmental alumni newsletter.
