University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law Professor Robin Craig will deliver a keynote talk at the Resource Management Law Association (RMLA) Conference at Te Papa, Wellington, New Zealand on Sept. 20-22.
The event is New Zealand’s biggest environmental law conference. Craig’s lecture, “Learning to Live with the Trickster: U.S. and New Zealand Natural Resources Law in the Anthropocene,” is based on her book, The End of Sustainability.
The RMLA is New Zealand’s only multi-disciplinary bipartisan professional association. It draws from the perspective and experience of over 1,100 members, including lawyers, consultants, planners, engineers, local authority staff and politicians, as well as the judiciary, in contributing an informed broader perspective to resource management policy and reform initiatives.
The goal of the association is to promote within New Zealand an understanding of resource management law and its implementation in a multi-disciplinary framework; excellence in resource management policy and practice; and resource management processes that are legally sound, effective and efficient and which produce high quality environmental outcomes.
