2015 AALS Panel Call For Papers: The Law of Resilient Cities: State and Local Adaptation to Climate Change
I'm guessing blog readers are probably tired of my posts over the past year about Idaho's Resilient Cities symposium; rest assured, this post has nothing to do with the event I advised last year in Idaho!
This is an entirely new resilient cities CFP for an event to be held at the 2015 AALS conference. From Alice Kaswan:
Michelle Wilde Anderson (Chair of the AALS State and Local Government Section) and Alice Kaswan (Chair of the Environmental Law Section) are seeking proposals for speakers on our sections’ joint panel on “The Law of Resilient Cities: State and Local Adaptation to Climate Change” at the January 2015 AALS meeting in Washington, D.C. The panel session is scheduled for Saturday morning, January 3, 2015, at 10:30.
We have anchored the panel with two confirmed speakers: Vicki Arroyo of the Georgetown Law Center and Tony Arnold of the University of Louisville. We are soliciting proposals for the last two speaking slots. We know that many section members have tremendous insight and expertise in this area and look forward to hearing your ideas.
Here is a more detailed description of the panel:
The Law of Resilient Cities: State and Local Adaptation to Climate Change: As wild storms, flooding rivers, rising seas, droughts, heat, and fire jeopardize our communities, how should the legal academy respond? Last year, at the 2014 AALS meeting, speakers from the environmental law section field trip spoke from the trenches about the challenges facing New York and New York City’s monumental effort to plan and build a more resilient city that can withstand the changes to be wrought by climate change. This year, we bring together scholars and clinicians of state and local government law and of environmental law to take the next step: to share perspectives on how governmental institutions at every level can evolve to create effective and equitable responses to the profound challenges posed by climate change adaptation.
