In recognition of Earth Day, we highlight some recent work and perspectives of Harvard Law’s students and scholars committed to environmental change.
At a recent event, Harvard Law School Jody Freeman and Richard Lazarus gave an account of the environmental policy swing underway in the Biden administration.
Wendy Jacobs ’81, one of the nation’s most highly celebrated environmental law experts and the founder of the first-ever environmental law and policy clinic at Harvard Law School, died on Feb. 1, after a long illness. She was 64.
HLS faculty and legal scholars consider the legal concerns and challenges that have emerged as the United States prepares for the 2020 presidential election and its aftereffects.
Jody Freeman discusses the progress the nation has made in protecting the environment since Earth Day was founded in 1970, the Trump administration’s efforts to undo Obama-era federal climate regulations, and COVID-19’s urgent lessons for the planet’s health.
Though the news isn’t all bad, Harvard Law Professors Jody Freeman and Richard Lazarus warned of brewing issues ahead at the annual Supreme Court Environmental Law Review and Preview.
The American Academy of Arts and Sciences has announced that Jody Freeman LL.M. ’91 S.J.D. ’95, Archibald Cox Professor of Law, has been elected a member of the honorary society, one of twelve members of the Harvard faculty to receive the honor this year.
This spring, Professors Jody Freeman, Alex Whiting, Carol Steiker and Paul Butler each shared personal stories and experiences with a group of soon-to-be graduates poised to enter the new phase of Life After HLS as part of the Last Lecture Series, an event sponsored annually by the 3L and LL.M. Class Marshals.
Carol Steiker ’86 began her Last Lecture to the class of 2018 by sharing the questions she is frequently asked by students–what electives and classes to take, what summer job they should seek–and the advice she gives them: “It doesn’t matter that much.”
In her Last Lecture, Professor Jody Freeman LL.M. ’91 S.J.D. ’95 encouraged the class of 2018 to think broadly about what success means, in their future career and also in life.
