The Law School is pleased to present
Climate Change and the Courts
A program with Simon Wynn, Senior Counsel for Environmental
Affairs, Empire State Development Corporation
This event has been
postponed and will be held in February 2011.
Mounting scientific evidence suggests that global warming trends
may have ecological and economic costs. Mr. Wynn, co-lead counsel
on the only climate change case that has gone to trial, will
discuss how courts have approached greenhouse gas emission cases.
Reviewing the science behind emissions limits, he will explore the
emerging law, including novel issues relating to common law
nuisance, preemption, the political question doctrine, standing and
personal jurisdiction. He will also share insights on practical
litigation issues in climate change cases.
The program qualifies for 2 non-transitional CLE
