Working in collaboration with the UCI Law Environmental Law Society, the Center convenes an annual series throughout the academic year on foundational works on a range of environmental, land use, and natural resources topics. UCI faculty members, or the work's author when possible, will frame and lead the discussion about the work.
The series periodically will include public lectures or moderated conversations with authors. The forum will meet twice a semester at the Law School and is open to anyone in the UCI community. The series will also include periodic screenings of environmental-themed films.
The Center’s Advisory Committee, in consultation with the student-run Environmental Law Society, unanimously decided to feature the following works in our inaugural series during the 2013-2014 academic year:
Where the Bluebird Sings to the Lemonade Springs by Wallace Stegner (September 25, 2013)
Last Call At the Oasis (November 7, 2013)
The Deliberative Practitioner by John Forester (Spring 2014)
