American Society of International Law launches new climate change website
In April of 2020, the American Society of International Law (ASIL) announced its 2020-2022 signature topic on climate change, International Law and Climate Change. Earlier this month, the society launched a new website to serve as a portal to the projects the Signature Topic initiates, as well as to other ASIL-associated projects on this theme.
Professor Cinnamon Carlarne, a leading expert in environmental law and climate change law and policy, currently co-chairs the International Law and Climate Change steering committee with colleagues MJ Durkee (University of Georgia), Dan Bodansky (Arizona State University), Maxine Burkett (University of Hawaii), and Jackie Peel (The University of Melbourne).
ASIL is a nonprofit, nonpartisan, educational membership organization founded in 1906 and chartered by Congress in 1950. The society’s nearly 4,000 members from more than 100 nations include attorneys, academics, corporate counsel, judges, representatives of governments and non-governmental organizations, international civil servants, students, and others interested in international law.
