UC Irvine’s Newkirk Center studies health, environment

Law and public health experts will examine environmental law, climate change and pollution in China.

By Susan BelknappPublished: October 07, 2009 09:30 AM

UC Irvine’s Newkirk Center for Science & Society will present a one-day seminar entitled “Stopping the Polution of the Planet: Priorities of Environmental Law and Health” on Friday, Oct. 9 from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. the Arnold & Mabel Beckman Center of the National Academies of Sciences & Engineering.

The series is part of the $2 million grant received by UCI School of Law to start an environmental law clinic to further public interest in the subject in addition to health and sustainability. The clinic will provide law students with hands-on training in environmental legal and policy work under the supervision of lawyers and professors, and it will be closely associated with UCI's Program in Public Health.  

Speakers include Erwin Chemerinsky, founding dean of UCI's School of Law, Michael Prather, Fred Kavli chair and professor of Earth system science and director of UCI's Environment Institute.  

The event is free and open to the public. Reservations are recommended; please call 949.824.9336 or newkirk@uci.edu. Parking is free in the Beckman Center lot.
