The Environmental Law Project (ELP) is an organization of law students at the University of North Carolina 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 including environmental awareness campaigns, organizing group and individual pro-bono opportunities at local organizations and firms, hosting speakers and events on environmental topics, fundraising for important issues, and providing grants for hard-working students in unpaid public interest jobs in areas of environmental law and policy.
