From water pollution to global warming, environmental issues affect every person, animal, community, and nation on the planet. What role can laws play to help solve environmental problems? How much do you know about “public interest environmental litigation,” which is a way for ordinary people to bring lawsuits to address cases of environmental pollution? Would you like to hear a senior U.S. government attorney and a prominent American legal scholar explain public interest litigation in America, and discuss how this system compares with China’s environmental litigation system?
Please join us at the Beijing American Center for a lecture and discussion about environmental law, featuring U.S. Assistant Attorney General John Cruden and Professor Jack Tuholske from the University of Montana. Mr. Cruden and Professor Tuholske will provide both government and academic perspectives on public interest environmental litigation, which became extremely popular in America in the late 1960s and 1970s as a way to bring attention to environmental problems and obtain compensation for victims of pollution. Professor Tuholske will also discuss the development of public interest litigation in China, comparing the U.S. experience with what is taking place today in China.
