Vermont Journal of Environmental Law Unveils New EcoPerspectives

February 3, 2014

In an effort to encourage collaborative discussion and energize powerful thought regarding environmental issues occurring in and impacting our everyday lives, the Vermont Journal of Environmental Law (VJEL) is adding to its scholarly repertoire. As of this year, VJEL transitioned to online publication and, in doing so, expanded their readership far beyond the traditional legal and policy printing. Now, they proudly announce a second offering: EcoPerspectives.

EcoPerspectives is a forum where environmentally conscious students, faculty, and non-lawyer folks can contribute opinion editorals regarding any recent or important environmental issue - large or small. Featured articles for the month of February cover topics concerning the U.S. Department of Agriculture's ailing animal control program, wind industry's flight from bird death liability, and Texas's blundering attempts to secure surface water resources.

VJEL's goal is to promote quasi-legal, quasi-persuasive creating writing on hot environmental issues that all readers can comprehend.

Each Monday, VJEL will release a featured op-ed on their website.

If you are interested in more information regarding the EcoPerspectives page or if you wish to submit an op-ed, please visit their website or contact Emily Remmel at
