Future Environmental Law Professors Workshop

FOURTH ANNUAL

Friday, October 13, 2017

White Plains, New York

REGISTRATION DEADLINE:  SEPTEMBER 30, 2017

The Elisabeth Haub School of Law at Pace University will be hosting the Fourth Annual Future Environmental Law Professors Workshop on Friday, October 13, 2017.  The workshop is designed for Visiting Assistant Professors, Fellows, Researchers, Law Clerks, Practitioners, and others, including current students who plan to go on or are considering the academic teaching market in the areas of environmental law, natural resources law, agricultural law, energy law, land use planning, and/or ocean and coastal resources law.

  • Receive advice on the environmental law teaching market
  • Obtain an insider’s view of the appointments process from faculty with extensive hiring experience
  • Learn about the history and future of environmental law in law schools
  • Participate in a mock AALS interview and gain feedback from environmental law professors
  • Present your work to future colleagues in the environmental law academy through mock job talks

This year we are also soliciting nominations to invite excellent current law students and recent alumni with environmental interest and identified potential to succeed in academia, including in particular students from diverse backgrounds, to attend.  We are planning a special session discussion oriented to these students and we have travel stipends available.
