Environs is a biannual environmental law and policy journal that provides an open forum for the discussion of current environmental issues, particularly those pertaining to the state of California.

Each year nearly 100 King Hall students work together to publish Environs. Environs provides law students with the chance to develop essential skills that will benefit them throughout law school and their careers. For more information about getting involved with Environs, visit our Membership page.

Environs welcomes manuscript submissions year-round from academics, students, and practitioners writing about environmental and land-use issues from a law and policy perspective. For detailed information regarding submission criteria and procedure, please visit our Submissions page.
