Visiting Assistant Professor Gina S. Warren teaches Energy Law and Civil Procedure.

She was a litigator in practice, with an emphasis in energy law and land use. She received her J.D. from the Rutgers School of Law – Camden and her B.S. from the University of Arizona. While at Rutgers, Professor Warren served on Law Review and Moot Court and after graduation she completed a clerkship for the Honorable Michael Winkelstein of the Appellate Division of the Superior Court of New Jersey. She is admitted to practice in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Virgin Islands, and Washington.

 Active in sustainable development, environment policy, climate and energy policies for over 20 years, R. Andreas Kraemer has been Director of Ecologic Institute since its foundation in 1995. In April 2008, he became chairman of the Ecologic Institute in Washington DC - Ecologic’s newly incorporated presence.
Since 1993 he is also a Visiting Assistant Professor at Duke University, lecturing on European integration and environmental policy in the Duke in Berlin Program. Andreas is Co-Chairman of the advisory board of OekoWorld, setting criteria for global investment for a group of ethical and 'green' investment funds or mutual trusts, and of Oekom Research, a rating agency specialising in corporate and governmental or 'sovereign' debtors' ethics and sustainability.  He also serves on the Boards of the Bellagio Forum for Sustainable Development and the French-Alsatian NGO Solidarité Eau Europe, and is a coordinator of the British German Environment Forum.

Frau Professor Warren beschreibt Ihren Vortrag wie folgt: 
“Despite the lack of Federal climate change policy, the U.S. has active policies at the State and local level to encourage sustainable energy alternatives.  In addition, the Environmental Protection Agency has been tasked with authority to regulated greenhouse gas emissions under the Clean Air Act.  For this lecture, we will look at recent changes to the Environmental Protection Agency’s regulation of greenhouse gas emissions from stationary sources under the Clean Air Act, as well as recent judicial decisions granting the public standing to bring public nuisance claims against energy companies who emit greenhouse gas."

Der Vortrag findet in englischer Sprache statt. Die Teilnahme ist kostenfrei.
