Stetson hosts public lecture on the role of courts in promoting biodiversity
Stetson University College of Law hosted a public lecture on the “Role of Courts in Promoting Biodiversity” on March 30 in the Great Hall at Stetson law school.
Judge Anthony Lucky of the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea presented the complimentary Foreman Biodiversity Lecture, held in conjunction with the International Finals of Stetson’s International Environmental Moot Court Competition, now in its 21st year.
This year’s competition brings international student teams from Africa, East Asia, Eastern and Central Europe, Ireland, India, Latin America, North America and Southeast Asia to compete at Stetson on the issue of ocean fertilization and marine biodiversity.
“Our future is in the oceans and therefore our future comes from protecting the oceans,” said Judge Lucky. “Everything flows into the ocean.”
Stetson’s Foreman Biodiversity Lecture series is coordinated through the Institute for Biodiversity Law and Policy, which is the recipient of the 2016 American Bar Association’s Distinguished Achievement Award in Environmental Law and Policy.
