Valparaiso Environmental Law Society (VELS)

As one of the most active organizations at Valparaiso, the Valparaiso Environmental Law Society (VELS) explores the issues of environmental law and policy through guest speakers, field trips and films.  VELS actively monitors environmental developments in the Midwestern region of the United States and takes positions on important environmental cases pending in the courts as well as proposed legislation and administrative regulations affecting the environment.  VELS offers an opportunity for students to discuss environmental concerns outside of the classroom and to appreciate the dynamics of environmental litigation.
