Law of the Land

News Story

On April 19, join the Elisabeth Haub School of Law for an engaging lecture from one of environmental law’s leading scholars.

Over 45 years ago, Lloyd K. Garrison and his associate, Albert K. Butzel, of Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison, won the landmark decision to preserve Storm King Mountain on the Hudson River. This was a major decision not only because it safeguarded “an area of unique beauty and major historical importance”—it also arguably launched the expansive field known today as environmental law.

Several decades later, Pace’s annual Lloyd K. Garrison Lecture on Environmental Law is excited to welcome Professor Ann Carlson, one of the country’s leading scholars of climate change law and policy, as the event’s featured speaker. Currently, Carlson serves as the Shirley Shapiro Professor of Environmental Law, and the inaugural Faculty Director of the Emmett Institute on Climate Change and the Environment at the UCLA School of Law. Among other accolades, Carlson is currently serving on an American Academy of Arts and Sciences panel studying the future of America’s energy systems.
