The Louisiana Law Review’s 2012 symposium, Coastal Land Loss in the Gulf Coast and Beyond, will be held Friday, March 30, 2012 at 8:30 a.m. in the David L. Robinson Courtroom at the LSU Paul M. Hebert Law Center. Admission is free. 5.83 hours of Louisiana CLE credits is available.
The symposium will address the numerous legal issues that relate to coastal land loss in Louisiana and other coastal areas around the county. This year the Law Review has brought together legal scholars from around the country to discuss coastal land loss effects on environmental regulation, land use planning, and climate change. Headlining this year’s symposium panel is Professor J. Peter Byrne who currently serves as the Faculty Director for the Georgetown Environmental Law and Policy Institute and the Georgetown State-Federal Climate Research Center. Ultimately, this symposium seeks to explore the potential legal barriers to coastal protection as well as the positive and negative ramifications that coastal land loss poses to coastal zone residents.
