ELI Professional Program

The ELI Professional Program is a unique membership society for environmental law practices and professional services firms. The program promotes the highest practice and ethical standards in the field. Members receive unsurpassed networking, educational, and dialogue opportunities. The program provides an interactive exchange of expertise and professional resources among ELI’s staff, program members, and the Institute’s diverse constituency. In addition to receiving the field’s finest publications, ELI’s Professional Program members take advantage of intensive legal practice courses, regional seminars, and forums on key policy issues. Membership in the program is highlighted by ELI’s prestigious Annual Award Dinner, attended by the nation’s leading environmental professionals in various sectors — corporate, private practice, government, and public interest.

Through unique policy forums, training courses, and educational products, ELI’s Professional Program assists members who aspire to excellence in environmental law.
