The Arizona Journal of Environmental Law & Policy

Founded 2009


Call for Submissions


The Arizona Journal of Environmental Law & Policy (AJELP) is putting out a call for submissions on a rolling basis for Fall 2020 and Spring 2021 publication. We are seeking articles that address environmental justice issues. AJELP is an interdisciplinary, online publication that examines environmental issues from legal, scientific, economic, and public policy perspectives. Our student-run journal publishes articles, comments, and editorials with the intention of providing timely legal and policy updates of interest to the environmental community. 

The issue of environmental justice encompasses a broad range of topics, from the disparate impacts of specific environmental policies to the lack of diversity in outdoor spaces.  Preference will be given to work that challenges assumptions and displays courage in tackling the many difficult issues we are facing today. We welcome diverse voices and perspectives, and we encourage authors from any background to submit pieces: scientists, advocates, journalists, lawyers, academics, and policymakers. AJELP seeks to function as a home for thought-provoking discourse at the intersection of environmental policy and social justice, and to serve as a tool to facilitate and promote necessary change.


Submissions or questions about submitting should be addressed to Editor-in-Chief Joy Parker at:
