Back after Summer Hiatus: China, Norway, Vermont, China (by Bob Percival)

This has been a very busy summer, which has spawned my first two-month hiatus in updating this blog.  During the week of June 13 I was in Beijing where I spoke at a conference on New Directions in Environmental Governance and participated in a judicial training program for more than 200 judges from China's environmental courts, sponsored by the Supreme People's Court and Client Earth.  Further details are available at the University of Maryland Carey School of Law website at: https://www.law.umaryland.edu/about/features/feature_details.html?feature=467

The following week I was in Oslo, Norway for the 14th Colloquium of the IUCN Academy of Environmental Law.  Four of my students made presentations at the conference and I spoke on the "Top Judicial Decisions in the History of Global Environmental Law."  Further details are available at: https://www.law.umaryland.edu/about/news_details.html?news=1734

I've just finished two weeks teaching Comparative U.S./China Environmental Law at Vermont Law School.  This was my fifth year teaching the course.  In a few hours I will leave for China to take some of my Vermont students on an environmental field trip.  I will be back on August 21 in time to start fall semester classes on August 22.

After I am back I plan to give this blog a new look with lots of new photos.
