Sturm College of Law Professor George (Rock) Pring and Catherine Pring were featured presenters recently at the International Bar Association's Annual Meeting in Boston. 

The Prings, internationally respected experts on the growing roles of environmental courts and tribunals, were part of a panel entitled "Environment and natural resources courts - do we need independent and specialized adjudicators?"  The Prings are co-authors of Green Justice: Creating and Improving Environment Courts and Tribunals, which was published by the Access Institute of the World Resources Institute.

The panel, which included several other experts from around the world, was moderated by Justice Brian Preston, Chief Judge of the New South Wales Land & Environment Court.  (Justice Preston visited Denver Law several years ago.)

Don Smith, Director of Denver Law's Environmental and Natural Resources Law & Policy program, said, "Rock and Kitty Pring are known around the world for their precedent setting work on environmental courts and tribunals.  The Prings continue to bring their insights and observations to a topic that is of major interest to those involved with environmental issues.  All who seek a more environmentally conscious world are indebted to these pioneers."
