First, Professors Jones and Pippin will present on the regulation of shoreline protection and efforts to protect the United States' Eastern Seaboard from sea-level rise. Then, Professor Randall Abate will present on attempts to hold greenhouse gas emitters accountable and how such litigation can facilitate progress on the path toward a just transition. Margaret Peloso of Vinson & Ekins LLP and Professor David Cassuto of Elizabeth Haub School of Law at Pace University will provide comments and discussion.
