The Quinnipiac Law Review will host its annual Symposium on Nov. 8, 2014
In February 2014, 46 countries, including the U.S., convened for The
London Conference on Illegal Wildlife Trade. The meeting resulted in the
issuance of a declaration recognizing “the economic, social and
environmental consequences of illegal trade in wildlife” and emphasizing
in particular the threat to “the survival of elephants in the wild.” In
response, the participating nations resolved to strengthen law
enforcement, increase international cooperation, endorse the action of
governments which have destroyed “seized wildlife products being traded
illegally,” and to raise awareness of the problem.
“In the past decade, wildlife trafficking-the poaching or other taking of
protected or managed species and the illegal trade in wildlife and their
related parts and products-has escalated into an international crisis.
Wildlife trafficking is both a critical conservation concern and a
threat to global security with significant effects on the national
interests of the United States and the interests of our partners around
This conference will examine U.S. and international efforts to address
illegal wildlife trafficking. With a particular focus on ivory,
symposium participants will examine the legal and policy issues critical
to the debate.
The Quinnipiac Law Review is a wholly student-run organization that
publishes four law review issues a year, composed of articles written by
faculty, judges, and practitioners from all over the country, as well as
notes and casenotes from students.
When: November 8, 2014
Where: Quinnipiac University School of Law
