About Us

The Environmental Law Students’ Association (ELSA) is an NUS Law interest group affiliated to the Asia-Pacific Centre for Environmental Law (APCEL). Founded in 2016, ELSA seeks to become the undergraduate centre in environmental law and policy, anchored in Singapore but with a continuing interest in Southeast Asia and the wider Asia-Pacific region. Our substantive focus is on Singapore environment and land use law. Guided by the overarching principle of intergenerational environmental justice, we encourage students to get involved in environmental law and policy. We contribute to environmental law research, pro bono projects, experiential learning, and collaboration with environmental law and policy leaders.
