Sustainability at CLS
ELS is committed to advancing educational opportunities for Cornell Law students as well as promoting environmental awareness and sustainability in the larger community. To this end, ELS has in the past organized a variety of conservation projects in the area and provided legal assistance programs with the Finger Lakes Land Trust and the Community Environmental Defense Council.
ELS worked with Cornell Dining and Cornell Law School to establish composting in Hughes Dining Hall and Saperston Student Lounge. ELS is working with other student organizations to decrease the university's environmental footprint and is always looking for new ideas.
In addition to the programming, service, and sustainability efforts outlined above, ELS is also working to advance the future of environmental law at Cornell Law School.
