Twelfth Annual Colloquium on Environmental Scholarship

SEPTEMBER 24 - 26, 2021

Vermont Law School will host the Twelfth Annual Colloquium on Environmental Scholarship on September 25, 2021. This event offers environmental law scholars the opportunity to present their works-in-progress, to get feedback from their colleagues, and to meet and interact with those who are also teaching and researching in areas related to environmental and natural resources law, or any related specialty areas.

Beautiful weather brought panelists outside, 2019.

Call for Abstracts

Abstract submissions are now closed for 2021. Those who submitted an abstract will be informed whether or not it is accepted by mid-June 2021.

Selected participants will be required to submit a paper draft no later than September 7, 2021, and all participants will be asked to provide commentary on another participant's paper draft at the Colloquium. Final papers will also be eligible for publication consideration in the Vermont Journal of Environmental Law.
