The Environmental Law Project (ELP) is an organization of UNC-Chapel Hill law students who share an interest in the legal and political aspects of national, state, and local environmental issues.
The primary goal of ELP is to expand the opportunities available to law students in the area of environmental law. Each year ELP works on numerous projects such as organizing environmental awareness sessions, organizing group and individual pro-bono opportunities at local organizations and firms, hosting environmentally related speakers and events, fundraising for important issues and providing grants for hard-working students in unpaid public interest jobs in areas of environmental law and policy.
