International Environmental Law Project (IELP)

Our Work

IELP specializes in biodiversity conservation, climate change, oceans and fisheries, and trade and the environment. IELP regularly provides legal assistance to clients and partners involved in the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES), the International Whaling Commission (IWC), and the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).

IELP also provides legal advice and analysis concerning the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and the World Trade Organization, as well as the World Heritage Convention, the Convention on Biological Diversity, the Convention on Migratory Species, and other conservation treaties. In addition to our work under international environmental legal frameworks, IELP provides innovative legal support for governments and others looking to strengthen their environmental law. For example, IELP provided the Ministry of Environment of Mauritius advice on how to protect the country’s environmentally sensitive areas. We also provided Morocco with CITES customs training.
