The University of Washington Law School is going to be hosting its second annual Yound Environmental Law Scholars Workshop in July and I thought it might be of interest to some of our readers. As many of you know, I really struggle with have given up on trying to articulate the line between environmental law and land use. The event will be July 10-12 ay UW in Seattle and they have already lined up an impressive array of senior scholars to read and comment on drafts.Here’s their description of the event:
This collegial two-day workshop features discussion of works-in-progress by ten early career environmental law scholars: professors with two or fewer years of tenure, pre-tenure professors, visiting assistant professors, or legal fellows. We welcome submissions from the broad fields of environmental, natural resources, and energy law.
Participating junior scholars will be asked to submit an unpublished work-in-progress one month before the workshop. Each paper will be circulated to the entire group for review and assigned to one senior scholar and one junior scholar for detailed commentary. At the workshop, each paper will receive an hour of discussion: a brief presentation by the author, followed by detailed comments from the designated junior and senior scholars, and then a more general review by the group. The overall aims of this process are to promote scholarly discussion and to facilitate rigorous early review for works to be offered for publication in a law journal.
Meals will be provided. Travel and lodging costs will be the responsibility of the participants. To apply, send a cover letter, an abstract of no more than 500 words, and a C.V. to Todd Wildermuth at firstname.lastname@example.org by March 1, 2013.
