Additional Information for Environmental and Earth Law Journal
The Earth Jurisprudence and Environmental Justice Journal is a student-edited publication focusing on two unique areas of environmental law which have broad implications on the whole of our legal system.
Earth Jurisprudence is an emerging legal theory that calls on us to abandon our current anthropocentric (human-centered) view of the environment in favor of an ecocentric or Earth-centered system of law and governance. It recognizes the interconnectedness of the earth as a self-organizing and regulating entity, and humankind’s role a vital piece of that larger whole. It provides a forum for discussions of the impacts our current legal and policy choices will have on future generation of all species. Earth Jurisprudence is a forward looking, inclusive and systems based philosophy that supports hearty environmental regulation and embraces a connection with environmental ethics and social justice.« Back
