About the Natural Resources Journal

The Natural Resources Journal (NRJ) is published by the University of New Mexico School of Law and is an international, interdisciplinary forum devoted to the study of natural and environmental resources. The Journal is policy oriented, and seeks to overcome the isolation of scholars in various disciplines who are concerned with natural and environmental resources.

Interdisciplinary collaboration in solving resource-related problems was a formative principle in the creation of the Journal and, for 50 years, the Journal has been guided by that principle. The NRJ's contributors come from various disciplines, represent many countries, and provide many approaches to the complex issues raised by the need to balance resource development and environmental concerns.

Natural Resources Journal is a member of the National Conference of Law Reviews, Inc.
