Harvard/Boalt/UCLA Junior Faculty Workshop on Environmental and Natural Resources Law
From the announcement:
Harvard Law School, Boalt Hall, and the UCLA School of Law are pleased to announce a new, jointly sponsored academic workshop, to be held annually and on a rotating basis at the three institutions. The aim of the workshop is to support the development of junior scholarship in the field of environmental and natural resources law (broadly and inclusively conceived to include interdisciplinary work that cuts across related fields or disciplines). The workshop is a joint east-west coast venture.
We are soliciting papers from tenure-track scholars either untenured or with no more than three years of tenure. The papers must be unpublished when they are submitted, and may be on topics that include: Environmental Law and Policy, Natural Resources Law and Policy, Land Use, Risk Regulation, International Environmental Law, Environmental Justice, Energy Law, Environmental Federalism, Environmental Law and Constitutional Law, Environmental Law and Administrative Law, Empirical approaches to Environmental Law or Resource Management, Environmental Governance, Environmental Economics and Law.
The inaugural event will take place this summer at Harvard Law School on Wednesday, June 13th. We are aiming to select a small number of papers for presentation at the workshop, which will be an all-day event. Authors will be expected to give a short presentation of their papers at the workshop to be followed by two commentators. The workshop will consist of the selected authors, the three host professors (Professors Freeman of Harvard, Farber of Boalt Hall and Carlson of UCLA), and six to eight guest commentators from the relevant fields.
PAPER SUBMISSION PROCEDURE: Please send papers and any questions about the workshop to Miriam Seifter, Environmental Law Fellow: firstname.lastname@example.org.
