Introduction to symposium:

The Next Generation of Environmental & Natural Resources Law: What Has Changed in 40 Years and What Needs to Change as a Result

September 28-29, 2012, at the University of Akron School of Law

Most U.S. statutes addressing problems relating to natural resources and the environment were drafted approximately 40 years ago. In addition to whatever imperfections these statutes may have had at the time, we now have four decades of change – changing technology, changing environmental harms and consequences, changing culture and global relationships. It is time to take stock of what we have, amendments and all, and consider whether we need to make more significant changes, not only to existing laws, regulations, and agency policies, but to fill some of the large gaps that have become more apparent over these decades. We need to begin to focus our proposals on what has changed over the years. We will meet this fall to discuss how things are different, how they are continuing to change, and how we can best address the environmental and natural resource issues of the future.
