U.S. China Partnership for Environmental Law Brown Bag Series

Thursday, January 23, 2014
1st floor Jacobs House, Vermont Law School

US-China Partnership for Environmental Law Brown Bag Lunch Series:
Philip Boxell, former USEPA Attorney and Climate Change Expert

China consumes more energy and emits more greenhouse gases than any other nation on earth, and is home to the world's largest population and one of the fastest growing economies. China is also positioning itself to become a global leader in renewable energy production and low-carbon development. There is no question that the manner in which China deals with these issues will have a profound impact on everyone's future.

For those students interested in discussing these issues and learning more about the China Program's work, as well as opportunities for you to work with the China Program, then please join us on Thursday, Jan. 23rd at 12:45 pm in the ground floor of the Jacobs House (directly across the street from the Energy Institute) for the first of our bi-weekly "BYO" brown bag lunch series.

This Tuesday we will be joined by Philip Boxell. Philip Boxell has practiced environmental law for thirty years in federal and state agencies, law firms, a corporation and as a solo practitioner. He has taught environmental and intellectual property law in the US and PR China. His experience includes complex environmental federal and state litigation, administrative law including complex regulatory law, contract law and intellectual property law. He has taught courses on US law with a focus on the energy, economic and environmental law of climate change and intellectual property as an adjunct and visiting law school professor at the Beijing Foreign Studies University, Beihang University, and University of International Business and Economics Law Schools in Beijing. He is also writing a book on the interface of law and science in addressing climate change.
