DELPF plans to examine the development of American environmental justice law and policy in the twenty years since President Bill Clinton issued Executive Order 12,898, which mandated that "each Federal agency shall make achieving environmental justice part of its mission." This symposium will explore domestic environmental justice issues as well as the idea of leakage of environmental harms from the United States to developing countries. That is, that the negative environmental externalities of the United States economy - those that inspired the American environmental justice movement - have shifted overseas. Examples of environmental leakage include the export of American electronic waste ("e-waste"), the United States' non-ratification of the Basel Convention, and climate justice realities arising from American carbon dioxide emissions.

The annual celebration of the Law School’s international students and scholars will be held Sept. 23 – 27.
