Event description

Description

The annual Frontiers in Environmental Law Colloquium provides a forum for environmental law academics and practitioners to share and discuss their experiences, research and teaching practices.

Through a supportive forum, we aim to:

  • Foster a supportive and inclusive network of like-minded individuals;

  • Explore innovative environmental law ideas and insights with and beyond our discipline;

  • Contribute meaningfully to the future of environmental law in our region;

  • Share approaches to teaching and learning in environmental law; and

  • Assist environmental law academics to actively build their careers


Colloquium Themes for 2020

Environmental law is wide-ranging in its scope and ambitions and draws from diverse legal traditions and techniques as well as multi-disciplinary and theoretical knowledge. As in previous years, we invite papers that engage with the ideas of frontiers and boundaries. There are four key themes for the 6th Colloquium in 2020:

  • Jurisdictional insights: exploring contemporary environmental law developments and future horizons in specific jurisdictions (state and Federal), as well as comparative analyses across Australian state and/or national boundaries;

  • Law in action: examining the practical application of law on-the-ground, including implementation issues, critical analyses of case law, compliance and non-compliance concerns, and the challenges of law enforcement;

  • Towards best practice: showcasing innovative approaches to current environmental problems, particularly in the areas of natural resource extraction (living and non-living, marine or terrestrial), and environmental law responses to our changing climate; and

  • Multi-disciplinarity: highlighting methodological challenges and substantive issues at the intersection of environmental law and science, technology, engineering, economics, culture and the Arts etc.


The Colloquium will be conducted in an interactive, workshop style format, involving brief presentations, panel discussions, and Q&A. A call for proposals will sent shortly. There will be a small registration fee of $100 for this event in 2020. Unfortunately, we are not able to assist participants with their travel and accommodation costs.
