Spotlight On


ELR Logo


ELR started publishing in January 1971 with a singular purpose:

The Reporter is being undertaken in response to the widely-voiced request for legal research tools and basic information useful to those confronting environmental issues as advocates, counselors, government officials, and teachers. In attempting to serve this broad constituency, the Reporter will be designed to meet the standards of the specialized bar, although every reasonable effort will be made to assure that it is accessible to in experienced users.

ELR continues that focus today by providing a single source for all aspects of environmental law and policy. The goal of ELR is to educate the profession, provide timely information, encourage constructive debate, and explore new areas of innovation and understanding in order to foster a healthy environment, prosperous economies, and vibrant communities founded on the rule of law.

Law School Hints and News

Law school requires a different approach to succeed in than undergraduate. During law school, time will be a valuable commodity due to the increased need to balance your life, studies, and to maintain your health with exercise, nutritious food, and sleep. Taking a few minutes to schedule your activities on the daily, weekly, monthly, and semester levels can help you keep organized, reduce stress, and make you more efficient overall. Laying out a schedule will also allow you to set incremental goalposts for projects so that you can pace yourself and avoid being overwhelmed if project deadlines overlap. Having a schedule that includes project goalposts will also help you recover and reorganize your efforts when unexpected events occur.

Monthly Showcase

In August we welcome our new 1Ls to the study of law! The books below are part of our Law School Success collection. If you would like to check out any of these books, please ask the circulation staff to place a hold on the book for you, and you will receive it at the end of the month.
