The Environmental Law Alliance Worldwide (ELAW) is a network of more than 300 environmental advocates in 70 countries who are working to protect the environment and their communities’ right to live in a healthy environment.

The ELAW network was built on the premise that grassroots advocates working in their home countries know best how to protect the environment and promote human rights. ELAW works to give them the tools they need, such as legal research, scientific testing and support, and materials for educating communities about their rights.

ELAW’s office is in Eugene, Oregon but our staff attorneys and scientists work with our partners all over the world.
