Weekend Symposium at UO on Human Rights and the Environment

This weekend (September 28–29), the University of Oregon School of Law is hosting a symposium inspired by by Svitlana Kravchenko: New Directions for Human Rights and the Environment.

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.

Admission is free. However, there will be charges for food and CLE credits. 9.25 CLE credits available. Register online. See a list of confirmed speakers here. Schedule is available online.
