A Talk by Barry Hill

Date: Monday, April 27, 2009
Time: 1pm - 2pm
Location: Library of Congress, Whittall Pavilion

In his talk, Barry Hill will define “human environment challenges,” and discuss the relationship between the rule of law and government enforcement of protective environmental laws to address these challenges.

Acting Law Librarian Donna Scheeder will introduce Mr. Hill, a distinguished public servant, author and academic, who in his present position is responsible for coordinating the EPA’s capacity-building initiatives for foreign governments in environmental law and policy.  Additionally, he is responsible for enforcement and compliance assurance and helps to train foreign judges in environmental law. He will introduce his recently released textbook/handbook, “Environmental Justice: Legal Theory and Practice” (March 2009), published by the Environmental Law Institute (ELI), a leading think tank in environmental law and policy.
