Course Overview:
Washington Lawyers for Sustainability and Seattle University School of Law are co-presenting a symposium entitled “Sustainability and the Law: Making Sustainability Legal, Economically Viable, and Socially Just”. The symposium will be a full-day event on April 20, 2012 at the School of Law. The symposium will include presentations and panel discussions on topics of local concern grouped around these three themes.

Program highlights include:

• A discussion of sustainability and financing of public goods and infrastructure, by Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn and State Representative Hans Dunshee

• Suggestions from King County Councilmember Bob Ferguson for reinvigorating enforcement of environmental law in Washington,

• An assessment by Professor William Rodgers of the University of Washington School of Law of the adequacy of existing environmental laws to meet the challenges of sustainability;

• Perspectives on siting a coal shipping facility in Bellingham for exporting coal transported there by rail;

• An assessment by Roger Wynne, Director of Land Use, City of Seattle, and others, of the effects of the Growth Management Act after 20 years;

• Addresses by Seattle University School of Law Dean Mark Niles  and University of Washington School of Law Dean Kellye Testy on the role of the legal profession and legal academy in moving society in more sustainable directions

• A panel exploring the meaning of “sustainable business”; and

• A panel discussion of planning, financing, and building sustainable and affordable housing in healthy communities.

The presentations will focus on finding pragmatic solutions to complex problems with local impacts and global ramifications, and are intended for a wide audience of lawyers, and other professionals, business people, and employees of nonprofits and government agencies concerned with these issues.
