Fedder Scholars

Four students have been selected as Fedder Scholars for their work in Professor Robert Percival’s Global Environmental Law Seminar: Josh Dhyani, Maryann Hong, Taylor Kasky, and Renee Lani. In September, three of the students will present papers at the 13th annual Colloquium of the IUCN Academy of Environmental Law at Atma Jaya Catholic University in Jakarta, Indonesia.

At the conference, Hong will present a paper on the impact of global trade agreements on efforts to protect public health from tobacco use. Kasky will discuss her research on global food security. Lani will present a paper on “The Lacey Act: How a U.S. Law Has Been Leading the Way in Conserving the World’s Forests.”

Dhyani’s paper on the impact of climate change on the global insurance industry will be submitted to the Colloquium, but work commitments will preclude him from attending in person.

Travel to the Colloquium is funded by the Fedder Scholars Fund, established through the generosity of the late Joel Fedder ’58.
