Arctic Law Colloquium: Offshore Resources & International Governance


Chancellor Day Hall Maxwell Cohen Moot Court (NCDH 100), 3644 rue Peel, Montreal, QC, H3A 1W9, CA

The McGill International Journal of Sustainable Development Law & Policy [JSDLP] and Environmental Law McGill [ELM] invite you to a one-day colloquium on Arctic Law.

This colloquium will build on the success of the JS­DLP Volume 9:2 Special Issue on Polar Law. The purpose of the colloquium is to build a dialogue about legal issues in the Arctic between lawyers, academics, government repre­sentatives and students.

Arctic law is a topic of critical and increasing importance. As climate change leads to the melting of the ice caps, re­sources in the North and shipping routes have become in­creasingly accessible, leading to a variety of legal questions. In particular, changes in the Arctic environment give rise to interesting legal questions about (a) offshore resource de­velopment; (b) international governance. These are the two themes of the colloquium.

ONLINE REGISTRATION: Inscriptions en ligne:  Same day registration will be between 9:30 and 10:00.

A request for accreditation will be made to the Barreau du Québec. Lunch is included.
