The International Environmental Law Interest Group (IEnLIG) sponsors a number of events throughout the year dealing with a wide range of environmental law topics.
The IEnLIG’s sub-group, the Elephant Law Forum, has been particularly active in the past year with members contributing to an online AJIL Unbound symposium on legal protections for the African elephant and organizing an innovative session on Can International Law Help Prevent the Rapid Disappearance of Wildlife? (Thursday April 9 at 11:00 AM in Regency D) for the ASIL 2015 Annual Meeting. The forum also recently joined with a sister group of the European Society of International Law (ESIL) to form a collaborative platform known as the ASIL-ESIL Elephant Law Forum. Other upcoming events sponsored by the IEnLIG include a workshop on How Can International Environmental Law Reduce Disaster Risk? to be held at Stanford Law School, May 21-22, 2015. The Elephant Law Forum is also planning another event in late 2015 on animal law in conjunction with the Animal Law Section of the Association of American Law Schools.
In addition to the Wildlife Panel, the IEnLIG is pleased to co-sponsor a panel on The Limits of Judicial Mechanisms for Developing and Enforcing International Environmental Norms with the International Courts and Tribunals Interest Group. This panel, scheduled for Friday April 10 at 9:00 AM in Columbia B, will be a Q&A session with leading international litigators, court officials and academics discussing the scope for judicial mechanisms to contribute to the development and implementation of international environmental law.
The Annual Meeting program this year offers a range of other panels on environmental and energy law issues including sessions on Next Steps in the Climate Regime: Progress on the Road to Paris and Energy at Sea: How do Increased Energy Demands Test the Regime for Ocean Governance? (Friday April 10, at 1:00 PM in Lexington & Concord).
Please join the IEnLIG for our Business Meeting (Friday April 10 at 11:00 AM in Yosemite) to discuss the year’s upcoming activities and proposals for group events. At our business meeting we will also be wishing farewell to outgoing co-chair, Timo Koivurova, and welcoming a new elected co-chair of the Interest Group.
