David Victor is a professor at the UC San Diego School of International Relations and Pacific Studies and director of the School's new Laboratory on International Law and Regulation. His research focuses on how the design of regulatory law affects issues such as environmental pollution and the operation of major energy markets. He is author of Global Warming Gridlock, which explains why the world hasn't made much diplomatic progress on the problem of climate change while also exploring new strategies that would be more effective.
Prior to joining the faculty at UCSD, Victor served as director of the Program on Energy and Sustainable Development at Stanford University where he was also a professor at Stanford Law School. Professor Victor's talk is titled "Gridlock in International Law on Global Warming: New Strategies for Making Progress."
This event is co-sponsored by the California Environmental Law & Policy Center and the California International Law Center at UC Davis School of Law.
Lunch will be served.
