The Arizona Journal of Environmental Law & Policy (AJELP) is an interdisciplinary online publication that examines environmental issues from legal, scientific, economic, and public policy perspectives. Our student-run journal publishes articles on a rolling basis with the intention of providing timely legal and policy updates of interest to the environmental community. We believe that the form of an article or written work should follow the author’s research, thinking, and style, and our editorial staff strives to help authors refine their work and make it accessible to our broad and growing reader base.
The journal’s author-friendly publication policy requires shorter copywork periods, which allows them to spend more time researching environmental topics that interest them. They also get a chance to interact with students and professors from the University’s many acclaimed environmental programs. The journal has adopted a member publication policy that gives preference to publish substantial papers that members write on environmental topics. All of this happens out of Rountree Hall, a unique work space that is just feet from the law school but miles from the stressful atmosphere.
