2016 PROGRAM

Legally Speaking: environmental law and the big picture

panel

Day One

11:00

Hideout Cinema

How will global developments in environmental law, wild law, human rights law or climate change law impact corporate behaviour and how can corporate behaviour impact them? Our resident legal experts will share their expertise and help us to understand what might be around the bend when it comes to environmental law – and how organisations will need to respond. Steph Venuti is an expert in Sustainable Development and International Environmental Law and Policy – she will be framing this session talking about non-state actors (i.e. businesses) in progressing global environmental governance. Chris Halburd and Tom Quinn will talk directors duties and climate change – and Emily Ryan will give us a run down on the concept of wild law and using the law to defend the environment here in Australia.
