Developing, managing, and sharing knowledge on natural resources, conflict, and peacebuilding
10 March 2017 – 11 March 2017 | New Orleans, LA
Environmental and Energy Society of Tulane University Law School
The Environmental and Energy Society of Tulane University Law School proudly hosts the 22nd annual Summit to bring together professionals and the public on current and pressing environmental and legal policy issues. This year, the conference will include 20 panels on a wide range of environmental issues with nearly 70 speakers and moderators participating in the event. Our local, national, and international speakers represent strong voices from business, legal, and scientific backgrounds. We aim to include many different voices of the community to participate in a thoughtful discussion about what the current environmental issues are and how they should best be addressed. In past years, the Summit has won the American Bar Association’s award for the Law Student Environment, Energy, and Resources Program of the Year. This year's list of panels includes sessions on the future of nuclear energy and the marine environment in the South China Sea.
The Summit is free and open to the public, but completely student run and fundraised. Around 50 Tulane Law students, with the help of faculty advisors Professor Mark Davis and Professor Oliver Houck (and countless others), come together each year to put on what we hope is a informative and fun weekend!
For more information about this year’s summit please contact Hannah Polakowski, Outreach Chair for the Tulane Environmental Law & Policy Summit at firstname.lastname@example.org.

We hope to see you there on March 10th and 11th!
