The Institute has played a pivotal role in shaping the fields of environmental law, policy, and management, domestically and abroad.  We deliver insightful and impartial analysis to opinion makers, including government officials, environmental and business leaders, academics, members of the environmental bar, and journalists.

ELI is a clearinghouse and a town hall, providing common ground for debate on important environmental issues.  Today, as we celebrate our 40th anniversary, we are an internationally recognized, non-partisan research and education center working to strengthen environmental protection by improving law and governance worldwide.

The Georgetown Environmental Law and Policy Program (“GELPP”) facilitates and encourages synergy among the elements that have contributed to making Georgetown a national leader in environmental and land use law.

Among other activities, GELPP maintains a web site that provides prospective students and other interested persons with information about Georgetown’s environmental and land use law faculty, courses, clinics, centers, events, and news; organizes events and conferences to enrich understanding and discussion of contemporary problems in environmental and land use law and policy; and, promotes communication and mutual support among faculty, students, and alumni working in environmental and land use law, including publication of an electronic newsletter and maintenance of contact information of alumni working in the field.
