Inaugural University of Minnesota Interdisciplinary Environmental and Energy Law Workshop

Am delighted to share the latest development in our growing environmental and energy law program here.  This week, from May 3-5, we will be hosting our inaugural interdisciplinary environmental and energy law workshop, "New Directions in Environmental and Energy Law, Policy, and Geography." The workshop and our environmental and energy law program is organized around four themes: (1) clean energy infrastructure; (2) multi-level environmental and energy governance; (3) environmental, energy, and climate justice; and (4) sustainable communities.  We plan to host a major conference in spring 2013 on Legal and Policy Pathways for Energy Innovation that also focuses on these themes for which we will post an announcement and call for papers in the coming months.


I am particularly pleased that we will have scholars from law, public policy, geography, and business from the University of Minnesota and other universities around the country presenting papers and often commenting on work from another discipline. We also are incorporating our students, including giving inaugural awards to their law, public policy, and interdisciplinary scholarship where they will discuss their work.
