“The Rule of Five: Making Climate History at the Supreme Court,” With Richard Lazarus

Harvard Law School professor Richard Lazarus will talk about his recently published book on the Supreme Court’s historic ruling in Massachusetts v. EPA in 2007 that the EPA has the authority to regulate greenhouse gas emissions under the Clean Air Act and that those injured by climate change have standing to challenge government inaction in federal court. Based on interviews with all the parties, and with judges and justices, the book tells the inside story of how an unlikely team of lawyers and climate activists overcame EPA and industry opposition — and their own divisions — to win the most important environmental case ever brought before the Supreme Court.

Join the Virginia Law Review to explore the status of student speech rights 50 years after the Supreme Court famously declared that students do not “shed their constitutional rights to freedom of speech or expression at the schoolhouse gate.” The conference features a lineup of academics, students and advocacy group organizers who will dive into topics such as the digital classroom, student counter-protesting, and hate speech. Mary Beth Tinker, one of the original case’s plaintiffs, will give the keynote address. The half-day event is sponsored by the Virginia Law Review Online and the Karsh Center for Law and Democracy, with support from several Law School student organizations.
