2014 Kevin McCann Lecture on Energy and Resources Law: Professor Kim Talus
18 November 2014
The increasing tension between Russia and the West has not come without consequences for the energy sector. Common projects are being reconsidered, supply diversification is high on the political agenda, there has been a re-enforced push for renewable energy, and the increased interconnection of various member states, are among the consequences of these events.
About the speaker:
Kim Talus is a Professor of European Economic and Energy Law at UEF Law School and the Director of the Center for Climate Change, Energy and Environmental Law (http://www.uef.fi/en/cceel). He is also a Professor of Energy Law at the University of Helsinki. His research and other activities focus on international, comparative and European energy law.
18 November 2014
As part of the World Parks Congress been held at Sydney Olympic Park in November the Australian Centre for Climate and Environmental Law at the Sydney Law School is conducting a mock case on marine issues. Based on a hypothetical request for an Advisory Opinion from the ICJ, the case will examine the legal and scientific issues concerning the protection of the world's most iconic reefs from human-induced climate change and ocean acidification. The case will be heard by Justice Nicola Pain (NSW Land and Environment Court), Justice Rachel Pepper (NSW Land and Environment Court) and Associate Professor Tim Stephens (Sydney Law School). The advocates will be senior students from the Sydney Law School (Elizabeth Pearson, Eric Shi and John Tsaousidis) and expert evidence will be given by Dr Paul Marshall (University of Queensland), a leading expert in applied conservation science and a specialist on the impacts of climate change on coral reefs.
The NELLCO Legal Scholarship Repository provides a free and persistent point of access for working papers, reports, lecture series, workshop presentations, and other scholarship created by faculty at NELLCO member schools, including law schools at Berkeley, Boston College, Cornell, Duke, Yale and many others.
