About JAEL


The Journal of Animal and Environmental Law (JAEL) is a student run and peer-reviewed online publication focused on presenting multidisciplinary perspectives on animal and environmental issues.

The Journal of Animal and Environmental Law was founded in 2009 by a group of students and faculty with passion for increasing awareness and scholarship in the budding areas of animal and environmental law. Today, JAEL is the only journal at the University of Louisville Brandeis School of Law to publish its content exclusively online and is leading the way in using a variety of social media platforms to increase scholarship and awareness to pertinent legal issues. JAEL’s goal is to become an essential resource for judges, lawyers, teachers, and school administrators on matters relating to animal and environmental law. New journal members are J.D. candidates selected based upon their writing skills, research ability and interest in JAEL, environmental law, and animal law.
