ELS Executive Board nominations due Friday, April 1st- We Need Candidates!

In less than three semesters, the Environmental Law Society of New York Law School has gone from a non-existant, dormant Society to one with over 80 members! We have hosted public speakers, screened environmental documentaries, participated in community service and research projects, and successfully petitioned the NYLS administration to add more environmental law courses to our curriculum.

This is because our Members care and so does our Executive Board. Now its your chance to step up!
