The first edition of The Making of Environmental Law was a foundational book that surveyed the first 30 years of modern environmental law. Since then, the landscape of environmental protections in the face of global warming has continued to change in dramatic ways. At this UCLA Emmett Institute book talk, Richard Lazarus will discuss the new, second edition of The Making of Environmental Law, which now covers the first 50 years of the environmental movement, examining the legal, political, cultural, and scientific factors that have shaped—and sometimes hindered—the creation of pollution controls and natural resource management laws. Cara Horowitz, Andrew Sabin Family Foundation Co-Executive Director of the Emmett Institute, will moderate the conversation.

Lunch will be provided before the event.
