Journals

Green Law
The Law School’s Center for Environmental Legal Studies first published Environmentally Friendly in 1997. The journal included short, well-researched articles and updates on developments in environmental law. A revised publication, called GreenLaw, continues the tradition of providing readers with short, quality articles on a wide range of environmental law issues. It also provides summaries of important lectures on environmental law at Pace and insight into the student experience, as well as keeping readers up-to-date on other activities at the Law School.

Pace Environmental Law Review
Established in 1982, the Pace Environmental Law Review (PELR) was one of the first scholarly journals established in the then new field of environmental law. Edited entirely by law school students, PELR provides a challenging opportunity to develop scholarly commentary and analysis of environmental law issues. PELR’s rigorous training in legal research, writing and editing is an important enrichment of Pace’s JD curriculum, while serving as a forum for the publication of original legal research by Pace JD and LLM candidates. It hosts a major colloquium every three years and publishes articles by leading environmental theorists and practitioners.

Pace Environmental Notes
Pace Environmental Notes (P.E.N.) is a service of Pace Law Library and provides information about recent environment-related library acquisitions, publications, and legislation. P.E.N. is published each month during the academic year.

Vera Lex
Vera Lex, the journal of the International Natural Law Society, was established in 1979 to communicate and dialogue on the subject of natural law and natural right, to introduce natural law philosophy into the mainstream of contemporary thought and to strengthen the current revived interest in the discussion of morals and law and advance its historical research. Past issues have been dedicated to such topics as rights, natural law and constitutionalism, national law and natural environment, globalization and natural law, and liberalism and natural law.
