About the Environmental Law Society:

ELS provides students and the general community with exposure to environmental issues and laws, participates in conservation efforts, and develops students' skills to participate in the making of sound environmental policy. ELS offers exciting hikes and service projects throughout the school year.

To enhance student opportunities to work in the public sector of environmental law, ELS students raise funds for a summer grant program, No Ke Ola O Ka Aina (For the Life of the Land).

Other ongoing projects of the ELS include publishing the Hawai'i Environmental Law Careers Directory; recycling; and participating in the City and County of Honolulu's Adopt-a-Stream program. In addition, ELS sponsors hiking trips and beach cleanups; organizes service trips to the uninhabited island of Kaho'olawe, a former U.S. military bombing target, to assist in cleanup and revegetation efforts; and presents papers at and participates in regional and national environmental conferences.
