Who Can Submit

UCLA Journal of Environmental Law and Policy generally publishes materials both of a topical and of a general nature.  The editors welcome articles of a legal, scholarly nature, with each fact and proposition footnoted.  The editors will also consider articles written in other than conventional law review format covering events or problems in the field of environmental and land use law and policy.

The editors reserve the right to determine the suitability of submissions. For additional information, please contact


Once posted to a repository, a paper cannot generally be revised or removed. We feel it is important to provide perpetual access to materials published within eScholarship whenever possible and appropriate. However, we will remove publications under special circumstances, including in the case of submission errors, rights violations, or inappropriate content. Please be aware, however, that even after the removal of a text, a citation to the paper will remain in our system, along with a URL.

If you would like your work removed from eScholarship, please contact the administrator:
