About the Lab

The NEPA Lab is a digital resource dedicated to improving the functionality, profile, and public understanding of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). As one of the foundational statutes of U.S. environmental law, NEPA affects every environmental medium, every major agency of the U.S. Government and many of their discretionary decisions.  In almost every corner of the legal jurisdiction of the United States one finds some trace or hallmark of NEPA’s.  This digital “laboratory” is dedicated to transparency, learning and experimentation.  Our aim is for impartiality–as best it can be achieved–and analytical rigor, in the spirit of NEPA itself!

The editor and publisher of the NEPA Lab is Professor Jamison E. Colburn. Questions, comments and/or suggestions can be emailed to him at jec38[at]psu.edu.
