Welcome to West-Northwest

Hastings West-Northwest Journal of Environmental Law and Policy is the first regional environmental law journal covering California and the Pacific Northwest. By concentrating on this manageable geographical area, West-Northwest provides in-depth analysis of regionally specific environmental law issues.

We also recognize that an on-going colloquy on the environment must synthesize the work of a broad range of academic and professional disciplines. Thus, in addition to traditional legal scholarship, West-Northwest publishes articles by policy analysts and researchers from such complementary fields as economics, anthropology, regional planning, engineering, and biological/earth sciences.

An important refinement to this interdisciplinary approach is the inclusion of excerpts from exemplary works of fiction and non-fiction relevant to articles or symposium topics. West-Northwest showcases outstanding works of environmental literature, carefully chosen for their relevance, insightfulness, and ability to bring academic materials fully to life.

In sum, West-Northwest functions as an integrated forum for dialogue on law, policy, and thought, celebrating the unique environment of California, Hawaii, Alaska, and the Pacific Northwest.

Publishes two issues per yearly volume: Winter and Summer.
