Tea Speaker May 31st: Mary Wood, UO Law

Join us for our final Tea of the year with Dr. Mary Wood, the Philip H. Knight Professor of Law and Faculty Director of the school’s Environmental and Natural Resources Law Center. Her talk is entitled: “Juliana v. United States: The public trust principle and the global climate emergency.”  Her talk will focus on the current case being brought against the US government by several students in Eugene, which uses the public trust principle to assert that through the government’s affirmative actions that cause climate change, it has violated the youngest generation’s constitutional rights to life, liberty, and property, as well as failed to protect essential public trust resources.

As always, please join us for snacks in Condon 108 at 3:30 prior to the talk!
