Welcome to the website and blog of the Journal of Environmental Law and Practice (JELP). Published by Carswell, a Thomson Reuters business, and currently edited by Professors Meinhard Doelle (Dalhousie University, Schulich School of Law), Sharon Mascher and Martin Olszynski (both at the University of Calgary Faculty of Law), the JELP is Canada’s premier refereed legal periodical in Canadian environmental law and policy, with more than 20 years of publishing experience.

Here you will find information about the JELP, submission guidelines, contact information, as well as information about previous and upcoming conferences. In the coming months, we will provide information on forthcoming articles, as well as updates and commentary on current issues in environmental law and practice in Canada. We look forward to working with Canada’s environmental law community as we embark on this new and exciting phase for the JELP.

Call for Submissions

Now that we have successfully completed the transition of the Journal of Environmental Law & Practice (JELP) to its new editorial team, we are writing to remind the Canadian environmental law and policy community to consider JELP for your environmental law publications.

There appears to be no shortage of environmental issues deserving further analysis and discussion, from the Lac Megantic disaster and the Northern Gateway project to the recent Mount Polley tailings breach, as well as significant developments in related areas of law, such as Aboriginal law (e.g. the recent Supreme Court decision in Wiliams v. British Columbia).

The next submission deadline for JELP is late August, but we welcome submissions anytime, as we publish three issues a year and our publication process is relatively quick. We welcome all submissions, but contributions from established academics are critical to the continuing success of the journal.

We are very honoured to serve as the editorial team for what is still Canada’s only faculty run environmental law journal.  We believe JELP is a critical communication and research dissemination tool for the environmental law community in Canada. In a world where it is easy to drown in information, it is wonderful to be able to turn to one journal for leading research and ideas in this critical area of law.

To this end, we have developed a website for JELP (www.jelp.ca), which we hope will serve as a place for all of us to share the latest thinking in Canadian environmental law.

For any comments or questions related to JELP, please do not hesitate to contact us at jelp@usask.ca.
