This podcast is of a conversation with two officers of Environmental Law Society (ELS) at Brooklyn Law School. ELS is a student organization with interests in environmental law, international law, the laws of war and bio-terrorism, real estate law, land use and zoning laws. The ELS officers talk about their efforts to create opportunities for its members by hosting events where students can meet with leading experts in a variety of fields. They also discuss their plans for the upcoming year. ELS recently sponsored Irena Salina’s award-winning documentary investigation into an important political and environmental issue of the 21st Century – The World Water Crisis. The documentary is called Flow: How Did a Handful of Corporations Steal Our Water?

ELS showed the film during the same week when the United Nations sponsored World Water Day on March 22. Starting in 1993, the United Nations General Assembly by resolution designated March 22 of each year as the World Day for Water. Here is the trailer for the documentary Flow.
