Quinnipiac Law Review 2014 Symposium International Wildlife Trafficking

From the email:

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

the world.”

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.
