Sumudu Atapattu was invited to speak at the University of Miami Law Review symposium, “Climate Wrongs and Human Rights,” held in February. Her presentation was titled “Climate Refugees and International Law: A Gaping Hole?”

Steph Tai was invited to present "Environmental Science in the Court: A Primer for Judges" at the 2017 Mid-Winter Workshop for Judges of the Ninth Circuit in January. Her presentation addressed the science relevant in environmental cases, including measurements, computational models, and uncertainties.

Sumudu Atapattu’s book chapter titled “Justice for Small Island Nations: Intersections of Equity, Human Rights, and Environmental Justice” was published in “Climate Justice: Case Studies in Global and Regional Governance Challenges,” edited by Randall S. Abate and published by Environmental Law Institute in Washington, D.C. in December.

In January, Steph Tai submitted an amicus brief (co-authored with Royal Gardner and Erin Okuno, Stetson University College of Law) in Murray Energy v. U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The brief was on behalf of a number of prominent freshwater scientists, explaining the scientific basis behind the Clean Water Rule promulgated by the EPA and the Army Corps of Engineers on June 29, 2015.
