Environmental Law Association (ELA)
President: Shannon Huecker [email]
The Environmental Law Association (ELA) organizes and participates in a variety of environmental law events. Each year, the ELA convenes high-profile environmental law panels, organizes a rafting trip open to all GW Law students, hosts environmental law career panels, and sponsors a “Meet the Professors Night.” The ELA also provides members with opportunities to share information regarding GW’s extensive environmental law course offerings and tips on finding environmental law positions with firms, non-governmental organizations, and government agencies. The ELA is an active member of the National Association of Environmental Law Societies (NAELS). Notably, the ELA hosted the 17th Annual NAELS Conference at GW, featuring former Vice President Al Gore.
