"Green" has become a popular euphemism for environment.  "Juris" is the latin term for law.    Thus, "Green Juris" roughly means , the environment and the law.  Green Juris is composed of  law students,  paralegals and lawyers who endeavor to   pursue environmental conservation in the   legal arena. 


We envision law students,  as well as members of the legal community, to be environmentally aware and responsible stewards of the earth.  We envision an effective and  efficient use of the law as an   instrument in environment   conservation.  We envision forceful environmental laws that truly  address environment degradation. 


To promote creative use of the  legal knowledge in environmental conservation.  To raise environmental consciousness in the legal community and encourage vigilance and participation in the  enforcement of environmental laws.  To lobby and advocate for appropriate environmental laws.  When the proper framework  for the  Green Juris, is in place and   its membership already stable, the  following ambitious programs and   projects may be undertaken; 

1.  Environmental  paralegal training for grass roots  organizations. 

2.  A primer on   environmental offenses and how to  lodge complaint on environmental   law violations. 

3.  A databank on environment and the law. 

4.  An advocacy and   networking program. 

5. Symposia/seminars on environment conservation using the legal tool.

6.  Assist in the prosecution of environmental cases
