Frontiers 4: Annual Environment Law Colloquium

Annual Colloquium 6-7 February 2018 at The University of Tasmania, Hobart

The National Environmental Law Association together with the Law Futures Centre of Griffith University and the University of Tasmania, Faculty of Law are pleased to announce the fourth annual colloquium of environmental law teachers and researchers.

Colloquium Aims The annual Frontiers in Environmental Law Colloquium provides a forum for environmental law teachers and researchers to share and discuss their ideas, research and teaching practices. Through a supportive forum, we aim to:

• explore innovative ideas across our discipline;

• contribute to the future of environmental law in our region;

• foster collaboration amongst like-minded individuals; and

• help researchers and academics to actively build their careers.

Colloquium Themes for 2018 Environmental law is a diverse field that draws on a wide range of legal traditions and techniques as well as inter-disciplinary knowledge. As in previous years, we invite papers that engage with the ideas of frontiers, boundaries and intersections in environmental law.

Particular themes for the Frontiers 4 Colloquium in 2018 are:

Ecological restoration: How is it being used and how should it be used in reforming environmental law? Can approaches to restoration tell us things about the weakness of environmental law?

Climate change law: Including mitigation, adaptation and climate litigation.

Holistic ecological governance: Including intersections across environmental disciplines and environmental law.

Review, reflection and future thinking: What have we learnt and where is environmental law in our region heading next?

Case law analysis: Critical and contextual understandings of recent case law.

Teaching innovation: New, experimental, or research-integrated approaches to teaching environmental law.
