About Us

The Environmental Law Alliance Worldwide (ELAW) gives public interest lawyers and scientists the training and resources they need to help communities protect the environment through law.

These advocates, working in their home countries, know best how to protect the environment. By giving ELAW partners the legal and scientific support they need, ELAW helps challenge environmental abuses and builds a worldwide corps of skilled, committed advocates working to protect ecosystems and communities for generations to come.

The key to our strategy is locating strong lawyers who are committed to protecting the environment in their home countries. We collaborate to win big victories at low cost.

Responding to requests from partners around the world, we provide the support our partners need:

  • Strategic support as partners develop cases and strengthen environmental laws
  • Scientific equipment and training to monitor environmental conditions
  • Scientific assessment of environmental data to identify toxins and their source
  • Model laws and regulations, such as laws protecting water quality
  • Environmental and human rights records of multinational corporations
  • Expert scientific testimony to support cases against polluters
  • Critiques of environmental impact assessments and development proposals
  • Support challenging international financial institutions
  • Help drafting petitions and other court filings
  • Information about cleaner, more sustainable technologies.
