The Seattle Journal of Environmental Law (SJEL) is the first student-run environmental law journal in the state of Washington. SJEL's primary function is to publish high quality articles on a wide variety of environmental topics, and publication takes places on a rolling basis in the cutting-edge online journal format. SJEL is run by students who are eager to explore environmental issues, improve their writing skills, and be actively involved in academic discourse. Seattle University School of Law students manage every aspect of SJEL, from communicating with authors to editing articles to publishing the journal. In addition to featuring work by leading environmental law scholars, SJEL encourages student writing and publishes student pieces. SJEL publishes articles on a variety of issues in natural resources law, environmental policy, law and economics, international environmental law, and other topics relating to law and the environment.
