Environmental Law Program


International Union for Conservation of Nature

In 2016, Hawaiʻi’s Oʻahu island was host to the prestigious International Congress of the International Union for Conservation of Nature. 

Along with this honor, the William S. Richardson School of Law and the Environmental Law Program proudly took a lead role in facilitating and participating in these historic conversations.  

With more than 10,000 participants from around the world, this gathering of nations placed environmental concerns and efforts at the forefront. The ELP program’s leadership team and faculty led various workshops and knowledge cafes, while ELP students also had the opportunity to get involved.  The IUCN Congress has been deemed the “Olympics of the Environment.”
