Environmental Courts and Tribunals Study Co-authored by DU Law Professor George (Rock) Pring Featured in The New York Times

The first comprehensive global report on the status of environmental courts and tribunals, which was authored by University of Denver Sturm College of Law Professor George (Rock) Pring and his wife Catherine Pring, was featured recently in The New York Times.

The report, "Greening Justice: Creating and Improving Environmental Courts and Tribunals," published by the Access Initiative of the Washington, D.C.-based World Resources Institute, identified 12 essential elements "that go into making environment courts successful," according to Prof. Pring.

According to the Times' article:
"The number of courts and tribunals specializing in environmental issues doubled during the past decade, prompted by increasingly complex regulations and growing concerns about natural resources, according to a new study."
The article, entitled "Study: Last Decade Saw Boom in Environmental Courts, Tribunals" (April 20, 2010), can be accessed by clicking here.
