The Cornell Environmental Law Society (ELS) is an independent student organization at Cornell Law School.  ELS promotes interest in and awareness of environmental law at Cornell University.

ELS works to increase environmental law curriculum and scholarship. Through an executive board and volunteer committees comprised of current law students, ELS provides sustainability initiatives, environmental law programming, community service, and outreach.

In addition, ELS encourages Cornell Law students to engage with local natural resources, by organizing hiking, skiing, and swimming outings.
