A HEMISPHERIC IMPACT – THE NORTH AMERICAN CONFERENCE





               EENR is the only law program in the country that hosts an annual conference bringing together policymakers, researchers, academics,
               and private sector experts from the U.S., Canada, and Mexico to discuss cutting edge environmental and energy issues. Conferences to
               date have addressed a wide range of topics, including the effects of climate change and the internationalization of energy production and
               distribution in Mexico, Canada, and the United States; NAFTA renegotiation and energy; pipeline infrastructure siting; LNG development;
               the electric grid; energy privatization in Mexico; cross-border energy and commerce in the face of differing climate policy; international
               trade implications of a carbon tax; transmission lines; export terminals; international borders, the environment, and energy; and climate
               protest, among other topics.


               Speakers have included academics, governmental leaders, think tank and policy institute representatives, and private sector professionals
               from all three nations.


               As Calgary Faculty of Law Dean Ian Holloway eloquently states, “At the end of the day we’re all in this together. The U.S., Canada and
               Mexico share a continent, and we’re either going to solve our problems together or we won’t solve them at all. That’s why opportunities
               like this for us all to come together to talk as colleagues, fellow scholars and fellow practitioners is so very important.”


               The annual program is co-sponsored by Blank Rome, LLP, and the University of Calgary Faculty of Law.
