China Move, Casebook Update & Chile Conference

This is the last time for several months that I will be making a post from the United States. I am moving to China on Thursday to begin my semester teaching as a Fulbright scholar at the China University of Political Science and Law. I expect that many of my future postings will deal with my experiences in China, like the blog Tseming Yang maintained when teaching as a Fulbright scholar at Tsinghua Unversity during the fall semester 2005.

Tseming and I met briefly in Baltimore on Friday to discuss the progress of our Global Environmental Law casebook project. We had a lengthy conference call with the editor Aspen Publishing has assigned to us. I am delighted to have an editor who I have previously worked well with on various projects.

Valentina Duran from the University of Chile’s Center for Environmental Law was kind enough to send me a photo displayed of her wearing a Maryland Law softball cap at Laguna Biscanti near San Pedro de Atacama in northern Chile. She proposes that we try to collect photos of the hat in as many far flung locations as possible. Valentina’s Center will be hosting a conference on “Sustainable Development: Governance and Law” from June 25-27, 2008. My proposal to prepare a paper on “The Emergence of Global Environmental Law” for the conference has been approved. While I am not certain whether I will be able to attend the conference in person (it’s a very long way from Beijing), I will submit a Spanish translation of the paper for the publication that the Center will be distributing at the conference.
