Aloha!

Welcome to the Environmental Law Program (ELP) of the William S. Richardson School of Law, University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa. The School of Law is located in the dramatically beautiful Hawaiian archipelago. The most isolated land mass in the world, the Hawaiian islands are home to spectacular and unique ecosystems that are particularly vulnerable to disruption. Recognizing the challenges that Hawai‘i faces in developing an environmentally sustainable economy, the School of Law began developing its vibrant and diverse program of environmental law studies more than twenty years ago. ELP is nationally recognized and has over 200 graduates with certificates in environmental law who are contributing to environmental law and policy in Hawai‘i and throughout the world.
