About Us

Throughout its history, Yale Law School has served as a center for groundbreaking environmental thinking.  The Yale Environmental Law Association (YELA) aims to build on this legacy by drawing attention to all aspects of environmental law and related fields, through YLS community events, speakers and reading groups, and opportunties to connect and collaborate with other campus groups, as well as by working to promote sustainability in the use of law school facilities.  YELA places special emphasis on the interdisciplinary, multifaceted character of environmental law and its relevance to a wide range of legal and policy issues.
