In the Spring of 2009, the Rutgers
Law Record will publish an online symposium entitled Emerging Issues
in Environmental Law. In connection with this issue, the Record is
presently accepting submissions from law students, practitioners,
professors, and any other members of the legal community with an
academic interest in environmental issues.
for this online symposium, the Record has thus far accepted a student
note discussing the need for swift action to be taken in New Jersey
in order to mitigate the damage the state will face as a consequence
of sea level rise. This article considers whether the recent
claim brought by the Inuit village of Kivalina, Alaska against
several major carbon emitters, including ExxonMobil, would be a
viable claim for the state of New Jersey.
information regarding the Rutgers Law Record submission guidelines,
please see the Submissions section of this website. Additionally,
any inquiries may be directed to the Rutgers Law Record staff at
Emerging Issues in Environmental Law are due by December 1, 2009.
Thank you for your interest in the Rutgers Law Record.
