The Critical Legal Research Laboratory of L’Université de Sherbrooke has announced its call for papers for the “Down to Earth: Critical Legal Approaches and the Environment” conference, held over June 13th to 14th, 2016. Submissions are due January 4th, 2016, and must contain a 350 word abstract and short biography. Some travel grants are available for accepted presenters. The call for papers includes the following:

This event is an opportunity to reflect upon two themes that are rarely reunited in such settings: critical legal approaches as they relate to the environment. Even though the symposium is internationally oriented, innovative and critical approaches to international law and national law are welcome … This symposium aims to bridge the gap between theory and practice in order to explore alternative and concrete approaches to the current conception of nature within law, for example within aboriginal communities. Even if this event’s aim is to create a critical theoretical discussion, participants are asked to present their thoughts in an accessible manner, in order to foster a discussion climate truly open to all.
