Environmental Law Scholarship in the Fall Semester

The Environmental Law Program faculty has some exciting scholarship updates. Professor Michael Pappas’s forthcoming works include "Climate Changes Property: Disasters, Decommodification, and Retreat," Ohio St. L. J. (forthcoming 2020) (with Victor B. Flatt) and "Prevention and Cure in the Structure of Law," Loy. L.A. L. Rev. (forthcoming 2020). "Climate Changes Property" applies a novel economic model for understanding and alleviating the economic and human costs of disasters, and "Prevention and Cure" investigates concepts of prevention and cure to provide a novel framework for assessing and enhancing the structure of law and policy, particularly as applied to climate change.

Professor Seema Kakade has a forthcoming paper this winter in the Ecology Law Quarterly, called “Detecting Corporate Environmental Cheating” that examines the use of self-monitoring, reporting, and technology to detect cheating on air pollution standards in the shipping industry.

Professor Robert Percival has published the following pieces this year: “Transnational Environmental Accountability,” 35 Natural Resources & Environment (Fall 2020) (with Jingjing Zhang); “Court Loses an Environmental Champ,” Environmental Forum 43 (Nov./Dec. 2020); “The EPA as a Catalyst for the Development of Global Environmental Law,” 70 Case W. Res. L. Rev. 1151 (2020); Environmental Law: Statutory and Case Supplement 2020-21 (Wolters Kluwer 2020); “Getting the Lead Out: The Phaseout of Gasoline Lead Additives – A Global Environmental Success Story,” in Stories of the World We Want and the Law as its Pathway (Edward Elgar 2020); and  “Transnational litigation: What can we learn from Chevron-Ecuador?” in Research Handbook of Transnational Environmental Law 318 (Heyvaert & Duvic-Paoli, eds.

About Maryland Carey Law

The University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law was established in 1816 and began regular instruction in 1824. It is the third-oldest law school in the nation, but its innovative programs make it one of the liveliest and most dynamic today. Maryland Carey Law stands among five other professional schools on the Founding Campus of the University of Maryland. It has taken advantage of this location to become an integral part of the Baltimore-Washington legal and business community.
