Earth Jurisprudence: Building Theory and Practice


Australia’s Third Wild Law Conference

Griffith University, Brisbane, Australia

16-18 September, 2011

Earth Jurisprudence is an emerging theory of law which proposes that we rethink our legal and political systems to make sure they support, rather than undermine, the integrity and health of the earth.  This Conference aims to create a space for the rigorous development of international and Australian doctrine in this new field of law and should not be missed by anyone interested in the future of environmental governance.
