    Saving Nemo: Rethinking Ocean Conservation - Duke Environmental Law and Policy Forum Symposium 8:30 AMTBD

    DELPF's 2017 symposium will look at the major challenges the oceans currently face, ocean conservation success stories, and how law and new technologies are being used to change how we think about ocean conservation and governance.

Each group will focus their discussion around a series of questions related to the specific ocean challenge. Finally, the experts leading the discussions will come together for one more panel to discuss general thoughts on the breakout sessions. The symposium will end with refreshments and a networking opportunity for panelists and students. Breakfast and lunch will be served.
