Rights of Nature: Shifting Paradigms and Grounding In the Law

Rights of Nature: Shifting Paradigms and Grounding In the Law

Sponsored by the Vermont Journal of Environmental Law, Vermont Law School

This coming Friday, October 9 from 8am-5pm Shannon Biggs of Movement Rights will be presenting at the Rights of Nature: Shifting Paradigms and Grounding In The Law conference at the Vermont Law School.

From the event page:

Do environmental statutes work? Should nature take the stand in court?

The Vermont Journal of Environmental Law Volume 20 Symposium explores a new paradigm in environmental jurisprudence. Drawing on the international trend of legal personhood for natural entities, we will investigate and debate if this approach works in these countries and whether it will work in the United States. We welcome speakers from multiple cultures and perspectives for a lively discussion of nature’s place in our legal system.

Registration in-person attendance is vjelrightsofnature.eventbrite.com. Registration is free.

The event will also be live-streamed at vermontlaw.edu/live. After the event, it can be streamed at livestream.com/vermontlawschool.
