Earlier this month, the American Society of International Law announced its 2020-2022 signature topic on climate change, International Law and Climate Change. Created in 2017, the Signature Topics initiative aims to enhance collaboration and integration across the range of the society’s activities.

The  steering committee for the new topic will be co-chaired by professors Cinnamon Carlarne and MJ Durkee (University of Georgia) ; and other members  will include Dan Bodansky (Arizona State University), Maxine Burkett (University of Hawaii) , and Jackie Peel (The University of Melbourne).

“Climate change poses pervasive risks to human health, security, and well-being worldwide and demands ambitious, creative, and concerted action. I am thrilled to have the opportunity to help lead this initiative and to be a part of ASIL’s efforts to advance collective efforts to respond to climate change in effective and equitable ways,” Said Carlarne.

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.
