Environmental & Land Use Law Society
The purpose of the Environmental & Land Use Law Society (ELULS) is to promote awareness and integrity within the student body about environmental and land-use issues. This purpose will be best served through educational, professional, and hands-on events that involve participation by the members of this organization and the general student body.
Earth Day: ELULS will be sponsoring the 5th Annual Earth Day Celebration. Our celebration will involve presentations by local environmental groups, entertainment, good food and lots of fun.
Career Connections: ELULS provides students with opportunities to meet and learn from attorneys who are in the environmental and land use field. ELULS also provides students with numerous opportunities to network and socialize with environmental and land use attorneys through our Clinic Alumni Reception, social events and by attending local and national environmental and land use law conferences.
Environmental Awareness: ELULS sponsors snorkeling trips in Key Largo’s John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park as well as camping and canoe trips in the Everglades National Park to provide students with hands on experience while enjoying Florida’s natural beauty.
Community Involvement: Last year, ELULS sponsored a beach replanting in Hollywood, to curtail beach erosion. Additionally, each year’s proceeds from Earth Day help sponsor a non-profit organization dedicated to Environmental Integrity.
Leadership: Becoming involved in the Environmental & Land Use Law Society allows students to develop their leadership skills and abilities by taking advantage of the numerous executive board and committee chair that are available to all members.
Membership: Dues are $25 for one year of membership and include a free T-shirt. If you are interested in joining ELULS or have any questions, please contact any Board Member.
