OHELO is a community service project of the William S. Richardson School of Law Environmental Law Program that provides a "one stop" research library for those interested in Hawai‘i environmental law.

The goal of ‘OHELO is to promote easy and broad access to important information about environmental law and policy in Hawai‘i for researchers, legal practitioners, scholars, students, the regulated community, advocates, and the general public.  The site includes a comprehensive list of cases and laws related to Hawai‘i environmental issues, as well as a variety of materials that are otherwise unavailable to the public or difficult to locate.

Suppose you want to find Hawai‘i law relating to endangered species -- or environmental impact statements -- how do you get started?
