The Earth Laws Network is an initiative of the School of Law and Justice at Southern Cross University. The Network aims to generate interdisciplinary and collaborative research and stimulate practical legal innovations with other academics, legal practitioners, students and collaborators both within and outside Southern Cross University. Founded in 2011, the focus of the Earth Laws Network is the emergent areas of Earth Jurisprudence, Wild Law and related areas.
The Earth Laws Network provides scholarships and other forms of support to facilitate the production of published research and the development of associations between staff, students and external collaborators. As such, the Earth Laws Network will be an important resource for the development of compelling and rigorous scholarship across a variety of disciplines. Scholarship will engender new ways to think and will contribute to the development of ecologically informed legal innovations to better align regulatory activity with ecologically sustainable practices in support of the continued health of ecological systems.
