The Loyola Law Review marks its centennial year with a Climate Justice Symposium highlighting the disproportionate distribution of climate harms to America's most vulnerable communities. The event will bring together local, regional, national and international leaders in environmental justice to provide opportunities to interact with experts in the field and empower the local community to advocate for environmental protection. Featuring keynote speaker, Dr. Robert Bullard, the 2020 Law Review Symposium will provide engaging opportunities for attendees to meet with professionals in various areas of law and policy. Session topics include discussions about environmental protection, energy policy, food security, access to clean water and health care, and mass incarceration, and more. The event is sponsored by the American Bar Association's Civil Rights and Social Justice Section. The day will include lunch, a tabling fair with local environmentally conscious organizations, and conclude with a networking reception. Free CLE credit will also be available. The Climate Justice Symposium will take place at the Loyola University New Orleans College of Law campus on Friday, March 6, from 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. Those interested in registering or learning more should visit loyno- lawreview.com/climatejustice2020.
