Presented By: Michigan Law Environmental Law and Policy Program

Planet in Peril: Averting Climate Catastrophe Through Law and Social Change

ELPP Conference Featured Speaker: Dean Jonathan Overpeck, UM School for Environment and Sustainability

The seventh environmental conference presented by Michigan Law's Environmental Law and Policy Program kicks off on Thursday, April 11, with a talk by Jonathan Overpeck, Dean of the UM School for Environment and Sustainability. Dean Overpeck will set the stage for the conference by discussing how best to meet climate challenges.

The conference will continue on Friday, April 12. With climate change accelerating and the window for climate change mitigation and adaptation narrowing, this year we will devote our entire conference to how the legal system can promote meaningful action on climate change and broad-based environmental sustainability efforts. Panels and break out sessions will be held throughout the day on topics as wide-ranging as the Paris Accord, U.S. federal climate policy, and how law and business intersect to address climate change.

This event is free and open to the public. Please see a complete conference schedule at
