Environmental Law Student and Alumni Society (ELSAS)

ELSAS logo

The alumni of the University of San Francisco School of Law are a key resource for connecting students with the practice of environment law. The Environmental Law Student and Alumni Society brings together alumni, students, and faculty interested in environmental , energy and natural resources law.     

In Fall 2013, ELS partnered with the Office of Career Planning, the Alumni & Development Office and the Dean's Office to create the Environmental Law Student and Alumni Society (ELSAS). With the assistance of a 20-person Advisory Board composed of faculty and alumni, the ELSAS will sponsor two yearly events (one per semester), including career panels and mixers that bring students, alumni, and faculty together. More generally, ELSAS will provide a resource for students interested in environmental, energy and natural resources law, provide links among alumni sharing similar substantive interests, and create ongoing connections among faculty and alumni.

All USF faculty, students, and alumni are welcome to join the ELSAS. To become a member, click here. You can also join the law school's LinkedIn ELSAS subgroup by clicking here.
