Jul 01, 2004

TALLAHASSEE - The Journal of Land Use and Environmental Law, edited by students at Florida State University College of Law, recently was recognized for the citation impact of the articles it publishes. According to Washington & Lee's University’s law journal ranking web site, FSU’s environmental law journal ranks among the top 10 specialty journals in environmental law in the U.S. based on “impact factor.”

The impact citation measure includes only articles published during the past eight years, eliminating any citation bias in favor of long-published journals. In ranking among the top environmental law journals, the Journal of Land Use and Environmental Law performed at or above par with well-regarded specialty journals such as UCLA Journal of Environmental Law & Policy, Tulane Environmental Law Journal, Pace Environmental Law Review, Natural Resources Journal, and Natural Resources and the Environment.

Published twice annually, the Journal of Land Use and Environmental Law is the only journal of its kind in Florida. It features groundbreaking work in the environmental law field by leading scholars and practitioners, as well as law students. Students are selected for participation in the journal based on grades or the quality of their writing.

The top 20 specialty journals in environmental law based on impact are listed below:
