The Jurisdynamics of Environmental Protection: Change and the Pragmatic Voice in Environmental Law
Environmental Law Institute, 2003 - 505 pages
Jurisdynamics: the interplay between legal responses to exogenous change and the law''s own endogenous capacity for adaptation.
On November 1 and 2, 2002, the University of Minnesota Law School and the University of Minnesota''s Consortium on Law and Values in Health, Environment, and the Life Sciences sponsored a symposium in honor of Professor Daniel A. Farber's contributions to environmental law. The resulting symposium, The Pragmatic Ecologist: Environmental Protection as a Jurisdynamic Experience, was published in volume 87 of the Minnesota Law Review. The Environmental Law Institute has now combined the proceedings of The Pragmatic Ecologist with additional contributions from many other leading scholars. Dedicated to the proposition that the substantive scale on which law should be studied, taught, and learned is the entirety of human experience, this collection represents a first step toward reconceptualizing environmental law as an integral component of a comprehensive, dynamic approach to the biggest questions in law.
The contributors to this collection-Jonathan H. Adler, Ann E. Carlson, Jim Chen, Holly Doremus, Richard A. Duncan, Daniel A. Farber, Alyson C. Flournoy, Jamie A. Grodsky, Lisa Heinzerling, Bradley C. Karkkainen, Christine A. Klein, Melanie E. Kleiss, Douglas A. Kysar, Richard J. Lazarus, Jeffrey J. Rachlinski, J.B. Ruhl, James Salzman, Christopher H. Schroeder, A. Dan Tarlock, David A. Westbrook, and Amy J. Wildermuth - are at once deep in the expertise they bring to bear upon this subject and broad in the viewpoints they express. Professor Farber himself provides a foreword.
