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.
