The production staff of ELQ is comprised of a diverse group of Berkeley Law students with one common objective – to publish the nation’s premier environmental law journal.
2018-19 Editorial Board
The editorial board serves as ELQ’s senior leadership, is responsible for selecting and editing articles (with the able assistance of our general members), managing the mechanics of publishing the journal, and organizing fundraising and social events. The board is elected each Spring by an all-member vote.

General members are the backbone of ELQ, and it is through their tireless efforts that ELQ is able to function as a lean, green, publishing machine. Members are involved in all stages of the publishing process, from initial article reading, source collection and cite checking, to final editing and proofreading. In addition, members are active participants in ELQ’s program work, fundraising efforts and event organization. All Boalt students are welcome to join one of the largest and most active student organizations on campus.
Senior Members have a more active role in the journal, performing at least 20 office hours per semester or having their work published in ELQ.
Associate Editors perform substantive editing for the journal, often working alongside the articles editors. They are an important part of ELQ, and are often called upon for freelance help when projects require more time than can be asked of a general member.
