"The Future of Offshore Oil Drilling: Science, Law and Governance" is hosted by UCI's Center for Land, Environment, & Natural Resources at the School of Law, The Newkirk Center, School of Social Ecology, Program in Public Health and Environment Institute.
This conference will explore the scientific, legal and policy challenges and questions raised by offshore drilling. The conference will bring together scholars and government officials from a range of disciplines to consider the lessons from past experience with offshore drilling and the risks of future use. The conference also seeks to advance understanding of how the application of national and international law and governance, informed by translational science, can best prevent and/or manage the risks of offshore drilling. At least one panel at this conference will focus on the lessons of the BP Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill.
This conference is open to the general public and free of charge. Attendance at individual sessions is welcome.
