Emerging Leaders Initiative Membership Application

The Environmental Law Institute’s (ELI) Emerging Leaders Initiative (ELI-ELI) was created to facilitate the development of the next generation of rising stars in environmental law and policy by providing them with a forum to network, develop mentorship relationships, and encounter cutting edge legal and policy issues. Nominated by longstanding leaders of environment, energy, and natural resources law and policy, Emerging Leaders will benefit from a host of exclusive opportunities, resources, and programming - all of which are uniquely designed for those newly practicing environmental law and policy. Apply now and join us! Applications for 2021 are due December 11, 2020!
