About the ELA
The ELA is a non-profit organisation with its main objective to promote and assist in the development and application of environmental law in South Africa. The organisation attracts members from an array of different environmentally-relevant disciplines which results in the ELA being an ideal forum for networking and the sharing of information and knowledge in the field of environmental law. The organization endeavors to keep up with the needs of its members and is therefore open to suggestions and recommendations on the type of assistance that the organisation could offer to its members and to others.
The organisation is operated by a Secretariat (hosted at the Faculty of Law of the North-West University (Potchefstroom Campus)) and an Executive Committee comprising of the representatives of different regions in South Africa and a number of ad hoc members.
