On Friday, November 20th, 2015, The Environmental Law Program will host its annual Wine Tasting and Fedder Lecture. This year we will have a special program dedicated to Joel Fedder who recently passed away and whose generosity has made the Fedder Lecture possible. Constitutions and the Environment will be the theme of this year’s Fedder Lecture. James R. May, Distinguished Professor of Law at the Widener University Delaware Law School, will deliver the lecture. A leading expert on the use of constitutional provisions to protect the environment, May is the author of Global Environmental Constitutionalism (Cambridge University Press 2014) (with Erin Daly). The lecture will be preceded by a program launching a conversation over whether Maryland should add an environmental amendment to its state constitution. Following the lecture, the Environmental Law Program will host its 24th Annual Winetasting with the theme “Wine: Nature’s Thanks for Preserving the Earth.”
This event has become the program’s signature alumni event, gathering together students, alumni, faculty and friends of the Environmental Law Program as an expression of gratitude for their help in making it one of the nation’s premier environmental law programs. The event has been a huge success, usually drawing more than 200 participants. Last year over 85 different wines were tasted from a dozen countries. We hope you will be able to join us!
Please come and enjoy fine wine and light refreshments with us.
