ELP Director David Forman, and many ELP faculty, students, and alumni have partnered with our colleagues at Elisabeth Haub Law School, Pace University and worked very hard over the past year to create this amazing, complex, collaborative moot court on inter-generational climate justice from the ground up for presentation at the IUCN Congress on two days: September 1 (at the Supreme Court) and September 5 (at the Congress, Hawaiʻi Convention Center).

Please see the attached flyer for the Sept. 1 afternoon moot court at our Supreme Court, which is free and open to members of the IUCN World Commission on Environmental Law, members of the Hawaii State Bar Association, and members of the Richardson ʻOhana.

Please encourage your friends and colleagues interested in climate change issues and international law to come to this unique event.
