As reported in ELAW’s Winter 2002 Advocate

Alfred Brownell, founder of Liberia's first public interest environmental law organization, recently visited ELAW U.S. Alfred contacted ELAW U.S. last year for advice on forming an organization to provide free legal services to Liberian communities harmed by excessive timber cutting. ELAW U.S. connected Alfred to like-minded attorneys in Africa and around the world who have formed strong organizations to help local communities protect the environment and public health. Fifteen attorneys now volunteer their time at Alfred's organization, Green Advocates, based in Monrovia.
