Conference on Wild Law and Earth Jurisprudence

Announcing  Call for Papers for

Third Australian Conference on
Wild law and Earth Jurisprudence

16-18 September, 2011

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.
Papers are invited which explore theoretical or practical aspects of Earth Jurisprudence and Wild Law.
Themes may include but are not limited to:

  •  Building the theory of wild law
  • Wild law in practice, including wild approaches to environmental law
  • Indigenous perspectives of wild law
  • Wild law and intergenerational equity
  • Science and law
  • Wild law and climate change
  • Post growth economics and wild law
  • Teaching law wildly

Abstracts (maximum 150 words for 20 minute papers) can be emailed to: by 30th June 2011.

At the conference, the organisers aim to launch the Australian Wild Law Alliance, a gathering of individuals and organisations interested in Wild Law, Earth Jurisprudence and the Rights of Nature. Earth Laws is happy to promote and support this Alliance (while still focussing primarily on comparative legal perspectives and Indigenous lore).

Looking forward to seeing you all there again.
