About This Course

This CLE course will introduce lawyers to the concept of creating legally enforceable rights for ecosystems – an emerging area of environmental law which elevates environmental protection to a level comparable to human civil rights laws. This course will examine the legal theory behind “rights of nature” laws, and examine the anatomy of rights of nature laws that have been adopted by municipal governments across the United States.

This course will also feature case studies of the enforcement of rights of nature laws in the U.S., and of international judicial and legal developments around rights of nature concepts. The program will conclude with a presenters’ panel focused on the challenges of drafting and enforcing rights of nature laws in the U.S.
