AALS Call for Papers:
What Can Securities Regulation Contribute to
Environmental Law, and Vice Versa?

The AALS Sections on Environmental Law and Securities Regulation are delighted to present a joint session at the 2021 AALS Annual Meeting, titled “What Can Securities Regulation Contribute to Environmental Law, and Vice Versa?” We are awaiting final scheduling information from AALS, but we anticipate receiving a three-hour joint program slot. We are planning an innovative format that will include short (5-7 minute) paper presentations in plenary session, followed by collaboration in “table discussion” groups.

The political vicissitudes of environmental policy in recent years have led to increased focus on the potential of private mechanisms to achieve environmental results that had traditionally been sought by government action. At the same time, investors and market regulators have become increasingly aware of the need for corporations to grapple with environmental risks, particularly with respect to global climate disruption.

This joint session will bring together leading scholars from the fields of environmental and securities law to discuss the reciprocal influences that environmental and securities law exert on each other, including a discussion of the following questions: How do the goals of securities regulation intersect with environmental policy? Are the securities laws an effective means of advancing environmental policy? What are the regulatory implications, both for securities regulation and environmental law, of this intersection? What are innovative investors and companies doing in response to the risks of climate change?

We invite papers that explore these questions from a diversity of perspectives, both theoretical and applied. The authors of the selected papers will present short, TED-style talks at the 2021 Annual Meeting and engage in dialogue with each other and attendees about the ideas presented.

By August 15, 2020, please send your submission to Professor Steve Gold at stgold@law.rutgers.edu and Professor Wendy Couture at wgcouture@uidaho.edu. We welcome submissions at any stage of development, although preference may be given to more fully developed papers over abstracts and paper proposals. The authors of the selected papers will be notified by September 15, 2020. 

The Call for Paper presenters will be responsible for paying their registration fee and travel expenses.  Please note that AALS anticipates that the Annual Meeting will proceed in person as planned in San Francisco, (https://am.aals.org/), and the theme is The Power of Words.
