Transnational Environmental Law
(TEL) is a peer-reviewed journal dedicated to the study of environmental law and governance beyond the state. It approaches legal and regulatory developments with an interest in the contribution of non-state actors and an awareness of the multi-level governance context in which contemporary environmental law unfolds in a global context.

TEL offers a forum for rigorous analysis and discussion of the impacts of globalization on complex environmental risks and norms. It welcomes scholarship that enriches our understanding of contemporary environmental law through comparative and cutting-edge interdisciplinary analysis. TEL’s scope is broadly conceived in terms of disciplinary focus: its pages are open to scholarly contributions covering a wide range of environmental issues, including climate change, biodiversity, emerging technologies, industrial pollution and waste management. TEL also promotes the exploration of the evolving dynamics between environmental law and other legal disciplines (including but not limited to trade and competition law, financial law, and human rights).

TEL aims to support and contribute to a new generation of environmental scholarship that will bridge geographical boundaries, scholarly styles and generations. It warmly encourages participation by young and emerging talents from across the globe. TEL seeks to foster innovative synergies between different scholarly styles and traditions, and strives for the development of a new generation of environmental scholarship that will bridge existing divides, including notably the divide between North American and European approaches to environmental law scholarship. In the same spirit, TEL encourages the integration of theoretical and practical legal perspectives on current environmental issues, and aims to deliver scholarship of high salience to academics and practitioners alike.

The inaugural issue will include contributions by, among others:

  • Edith Brown Weiss (Georgetown University)
  • Dan Bodansky (Arizona State University)
  • Greg Shaffer (University of Minnesota)
  • Doug Kysar (Yale University)
  • Liz Fisher (University of Oxford)
  • Neil Gunningham (Australian National University)
  • Ludwig Krämer (College of Europe, Bruges; University College London)
  • Alexander Gillespie (University of Waikato, New Zealand)
  • Tseming Yang (Deputy General Counsel, US Environmental Protection Agency)
  • Koh Khen Lian (National University Singapore)
  • Bharat Desai (Jawaharlal Nehru University, India)
  • Charlotte Streck (Climate Focus)

The Editors of TEL warmly invite the submission of manuscripts from scholars, lawyers and professionals active in fields related to environmental law and governance. Prospective authors may also contact the Editors with proposals for planned submissions.
