The Hastings Environmental Law Journal is a student-run law review published at the University of California, Hastings College of the Law. The journal primarily covers environmental law and policy and related subjects with a regional focus in California, Hawai'i, Alaska, and the Pacific Northwest.[1]

History and overview

The journal was established in 1994 as a regional journal "that would contribute to an integrated understanding of environmental and natural resources policy."[2] The founding editors had the goal of establishing an "interdisciplinary journal" that would feature "articles by legal scholars, practicing lawyers, biologists, economists, engineers, historians, hydrologists, land and resource managers, and other professionals."[2] It is among several regional environmental law journals to focus specifically on issues involving California and the Pacific Northwest.[3]

Although the journal primarily covers environmental law and policy, it also includes complementary fields, including economics, anthropology, regional planning, engineering, biology, and Earth sciences.[1] The journal also features photography and other artwork relating to nature and the environment in California, Hawai'i, Alaska, and the Pacific Northwest.[4] In the past, the journal has published works of fiction, poetry, and other non-fiction. In 2008, the journal published an anthology of its "most important" articles to honor Joseph Sax's award of the 2007 Blue Planet Prize.[5] The journal has also been a sponsor of the annual California Water Law Symposium.[6] Rebranded in 2017, the journal is now known as the Hastings Environmental Law Journal.


Washington and Lee University's 2008-2015 Law Journal Rankings place the journal among the top thirty law journals that specialize in environmental, natural resources, and land use law.[7] Articles appearing in the journal have been cited by many state supreme courts in published decisions.[8] Articles also appear in many legal treatises, including American Jurisprudence,[9] American Law Reports,[10] and Westlaw practice guides.[11]

Alternate titles

  • The Spring 1994 edition of West-Northwest (Vol. 1, No. 1) was titled West-Northwest Journal of Environmental Law, Policy, Thought.[12]
  • From Volume 2 though Volume 23, the journal was titled Hastings West-Northwest Journal of Environmental Law and Policy.[13]

Abstracting and indexing

The journal is abstracted or indexed in HeinOnline, LexisNexis, Westlaw,[14] and the University of Washington's Current Index to Legal Periodicals.[15] Tables of contents are also available through Ingenta.[14] As of July 2015, the University of California, Hastings College of the Law plans to make available full-text reprints of articles at the university's online scholarship repository.[16]
