The symposium is dedicated to Svitlana Kravchenko who inspired generations of students, scholars, and lawyers to make the connections between human rights and the environment. Dr. Kravchenko wanted scholars to break the chains of old thinking. She was always ready to welcome new ideas. She loved to learn about creative jurisprudence in one part of the world or at the international level and promoted efforts to bring it to the attention of a wider audience in another part of the world. She also took new thinking out of the classroom and into actual practice, whether in her work with the United Nations or her leadership of her law firm in Ukraine. Scholars are encouraged to propose articles and talks that propose “new directions” in this evolving field. Presenters confirmed included Keynote Speaker Bill Rodgers.
