The Virginia Environmental Law Journal (Bluebook abbreviation: Va. Envtl. L.J.) is a law review edited by students at the University of Virginia School of Law. The journal covers research and discussion in the areas of environmental and natural resource law, on a broad array of topics from environmental justice to corporate liability. The Journal is perennially ranked among the top five environmental law journals in the country. 
Established in 1980, the Virginia Environmental Law Journal is one of the oldest journals at the University of Virginia School of Law. It is entirely student-run. The Journal is closely tied to the law school’s Program in Environmental and Land Use Law, and it provides the Law School community with a forum for discussion of current environmental issues through its publication of legal scholarship related to the topic.
Admission to student membership on the Journal is extremely competitive. The Journal seeks diverse scholarship and publishes its work three times a year. The Journal remains open to all perspectives and maintains the highest level of academic integrity as a forum for the free exchange of ideas.
The Journal publishes the works of leading scholars, practitioners, and government officials, as well as exceptional student notes.
Through its annual Symposium, the Journal encourages dialogue about environmental law and policy among students, professors, and the local Charlottesville community. Please visit our Events Page for more information about the Symposium.
