Climate Change One Focus in New Arizona Attorney Magazine
In its October edition, Arizona Attorney Magazine has launched Earthwise Lawyering and Law's Attic, two new occasional features that address topics of interest to lawyers and the broader public.
Earthwise Lawyering examines innovative trends in environmentally friendly law policy and practice. Law's Attic features short essays on noteworthy cases or legal historical events.
This month, Arizona Attorney published two articles on the effect of climate change on policy and law practice in its inaugural Earthwise Lawyering. In the first, Tim Eigo, Editor of Arizona Attorney, sits down for a Q&A with a preeminent authority in international climate change law, Daniel Bodansky.
Bodansky, the Lincoln Professor of Law, Ethics and Sustainability at the Arizona State University Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law, offers an expert perspective on law, politics and policy, based on his experience as a scholar and his work at the U.S. Department of State negotiating international climate agreements.
The second article, "Climate Change and the Practice of Law," written by University of Arizona scholars Marc L. Miller and Jonathan T. Overpeck, explores the relevance of climate change to many areas of legal practice.
The inaugural Law's Attic features "The Beat Goes On," an essay on the right to privacy and the historic case Griswold v. Connecticut. It was written by Jennifer Spreng, an assistant professor at the Phoenix School of Law.
"Lawyers, like all engaged citizens, are concerned with where we are going, and how we got there," said Tim Eigo, Arizona Attorney Editor. "These new features explore important moments in legal history, and a volatile area of our legal future."
Arizona Attorney magazine is published 11 times per year by the State Bar of Arizona. It provides articles on substantive legal issues, professional trends and feature profiles.
