• The Sustainable Development Law & Policy Brief

    American University Washington College of Law

    Washington, D.C.


    The Sustainable Development Law & Policy Brief was founded to provide a forum for those interested in promoting sustainable economic development, environmental conservation, environmental justice, and biodiversity throughout the world.


    The Sustainable Development Law & Policy Brief (SDLP) is a student-run initiative at AUWCL.


    Because our publication focuses on reconciling the tensions found within our ecosystem, it spans a broad range of environmental issues such as sustainable development; trade; renewable energy; human rights; air, water, and noise regulation; climate change; land use, conservation, and property rights; resource use and regulation; and animal protection.

    Volume 20, Issue 1

    Fall 2019

    The Sustainable Development Law & Policy Brief (SDLP) is celebrating twenty years of legal scholarship on issues related to environmental, energy, and international development law. We are honored to be the Editors-in-Chief at this pivotal moment in SDLP’s history. Over the past twenty years, SDLP has addressed cutting-edge legal issues developing within international environmental law. This year is no different. We
    continue to publish articles that push the limits of legal theory and policy, while giving a space for students to be involved in the conversation.

    This issue focuses on how different countries around the world are using their laws and resources to respond to challenges with
    international ramifications and impacts. From climate change to deforestation, the challenges addressed are global in scope, but the solutions provided in this issue show how existing
    legal mechanisms can be used to meet these global challenges. Schaefer outlines military-based responses to climate change,
    and Hess describes how U.S. and Peruvian trade laws can combat the illegal lumber trade. The articles present hopeful and practical approaches because the solutions provided are
    creative uses of already-existing mechanisms.

    We would like to thank all the article and feature authors for their insights and dedication to raising important legal issues. We would also like to thank the professors, e-board, staff, and
    publisher of SDLP for making this publication possible. SDLP is a team endeavor, so everyone’s effort is so appreciated. Finally, we would like to thank our readers, whose involvement and investment in SDLP are the reasons that we have been able to create this publication for twenty years.

  • The American University Office of Sustainability was founded in 2009 to help meet the university's goal of "acting on our values of social responsibility, service [and] an active pursuit of sustainability."

    The office develops and supports campus initiatives that promote sustainability within the campus community.

    Tenley Campus

    The Tenley Campus is LEED Gold certified.

    LEED (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) is a green building certification program that is the recognized standard for measuring building sustainability. To achieve certification, building projects must meet prerequisites and earn points to achieve varying levels of certification ranging from certified to platinum.

    The design of the Tenley Campus places a high priority on environmentally sustainable development principles. Key components include water and energy efficient systems, sustainable material selection, and interior environments that promote occupant health.

    The Tenley Campus construction adheres to the University’s Green Building Policy, which supports the University’s goal of having a positive impact on the environment, as it relates to all university owned and operated facilities.

    “Ideally, the LEED certification process is most effective when sustainable approaches are incorporated very early on in the design process as was the case at Tenley,” said Jamie Lee, AIA LEED BD+C, Principal at Smith Group JJR, the D.C.-based architecture and engineering firm responsible for the design. “Both the law school and the university were committed to creating a sustainable LEED certified building and had aspirations and goals that were incorporated into the project.”

    Some of the green features in the Tenley Campus:

    • Buildings are located to maximize public transportation options & access
    • Bicycle use is promoted through amenities like locker rooms and showers, as well as over 200 bike rack spaces
    • Infrastructure is provided for Electric Vehicle charging stations
    • Open space on the site is maintained and maximized
    • Storm water is managed for quantity and quality using on-site features such as rain gardens
    • Light colored roof material is specified to minimize urban heat-island effect
    • Buildings will utilize nearly 50% less water than typical buildings of similar size through the use of high efficiency fixtures
    • A unique hydronic heating and cooling system will reduce energy consumption by more than 20%
    • Construction procedures will divert more than 90% of construction debris from landfills
    • Regionally-sourced material will make up at least 20% of the building
    • Certified sustainably-harvested wood will be used on more than 50% of all wood on the project

    Receptacles for items that you may need to recycle infrequently such as clothes, batteries, ink cartridges, cell phones, plastic bags, and computers, monitors, and other e-waste can be found in several locations on AU's campus. Do your part to keep these easily recycled and often toxic items out of the landfill.

    • In 2010, AU adopted a Zero Waste Policy mandating the creation of a team to develop a plan for reducing and diverting 100% of the university's waste stream.
    • AU collects paper towel waste from all restrooms around campus separately. Student sustainability educators audited the campus waste stream and discovered that paper towels represent 13 percent of AU's waste. 
    • The university is reducing solid waste by replacing bottled water with inline water filters.
    • In fall 2009, AU eliminated trays in the Terrace Dining Hall, reducing food waste by an estimated 32 percent.
    • The university reuses and recycles surplus furniture by partnering with several area surplus and reuse centers.
    • In 2009, the university recycled 43 percent of the solid waste generated on campus by presorting cans, glass, paper, cardboard, plastic bags, batteries, cell phone batteries, cell phones, and fluorescent lights.
    • We collect and recycle vehicle waste including lubricants, antifreeze, oil filters, tires, and batteries.
    • University-owned electronics equipment can be recycled by simply submitting a form to AU Surplus.
    • Personal electronics waste can be recycled at our quarterly e-waste recycling drives.
    • We collect kitchen grease from TDR for recycling.
  • Campus Affiliations

    Here are some of the Law Societies that we collaborate with! Many of their members are also SDLP staff!

    We welcome all those who are interested in environmental law or those who love the outdoors and want to preserve the natural environment!

    The Environmental Law Society is a student organization dedicated to creating an awareness of current environmental matters and the legal issues surrounding them. Our mission is to encourage students and community members to support environmental initiatives. We accomplish this mission by keeping students and the community informed of important issues in environmental law and policy, promoting environmental scholarship, advocating for environmentally sound decision-making, and by providing opportunities to protect the natural environment and its irreplaceable creatures.

    Providing a forum for education, advocacy & scholarship aimed at protecting the lives & advancing the interests of animals through the legal system.

    Because issues relating to Animal Law also relate to a broad spectrum of issues surrounding other legal fields, we are a group of Law Students who seek to show how Animal Law intersects with nearly every other law field.

    The WCL Energy Law Society seeks to provide a forum for students, alumni, and professors to come together and promote discussion about developments in energy law and the global impact these developments have. The WCL Energy Law Society is both a professional and social network for friends and colleagues sharing an interest in energy.
