Panel sessions include Teaching Comparative Climate Law; CSR and Social License to Operate in the Natural Resources Industry; Comparative Energy Production and Delivery; Cross-Border Perspectives on Environmental Governance; Animal Rights & Environmental and Natural Resources Law; Indigenous Rights and North American Natural Resource Activity; Risk, Innovative Technology, and Climate Change—the Law of Climate Engineering; and Comparative Water Law: Water and Climate Change.
