Keynote Speaker: Professor Daniel Esty

Daniel EstyProfessor Daniel Esty, the Hillhouse Professor of Environmental Law and Policy and Director of the Yale Center for Environmental Law and Policy at Yale Law School, will serve as the keynote speaker for the First Annual Sustainability Conference of American Legal Educators on May 8, 2015, at the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law.  Professor Esty’s address is titled “From 20th Century Environmental Protection to 21st Century Sustainability” and contrasts past efforts to protect the environment with future strategies for promoting environmental sustainability across the world.

“The Program on Law and Sustainability is delighted to feature Professor Esty as the conference’s inaugural keynote speaker,” said Faculty Director Troy Rule. “Esty’s insightful research on climate change policy has already significantly influenced the global discourse on these issues.  Few scholars in the country have contributed as much as Esty to the growing field of sustainability law.”  In addition to his role as Director of the Yale Center for Environmental Law & Policy, Professor Esty serves on the Board of the Center for Business and the Environment at Yale, which he founded in 2006, and is an award winning author with 10 published books.
