Environmental Law Digest | Home
The Environmental Law Digest is a completely student-run organization that edits and produces a quarterly newsletter, the Environmental Law News
, for the Environmental Law Section of the Virginia State Bar
. The Digest is also responsible for editing a bi-annual compendium of environmental law case summaries.
The Environmental Law News
contains articles on pertinent environmental and land-use issues; summaries of key environmental and land-use decisions from Virginia courts, the Fourth Circuit, and the U.S. Supreme Court; as well as summaries of all environmental and land-use bills enacted or pending in Virginia's legislature, the General Assembly. Staff members are responsible for research, writing and editing involved in producing the Environmental Law News.
The Digest offers interested students valuable experiences including: exposure to current, substantive environmental issues; contact and networking with practicing environmental attorneys; and the opportunity to have their own work published. As a member of the Digest's staff, students gain journal experience while producing a publication that practitioners actually read and use.
