Call for Submissions: Paris COP

The journal Climate Law has issued a call for submissions for articles related to the Paris climate change conference (COP-21). Here's the call:
The Paris climate change conference (COP-21) to be held at the end of this year has the potential to deliver the most important advance in the international community's efforts to get the problem of global warming under control since the Climate Change Convention itself came into force twenty-one years ago. From a legal point of view, COP-21 has the capacity to develop and strengthen climate law at both the international and domestic levels. In the lead-up to the conference, the journal Climate Law will publish a number of articles dealing with the legal issues under discussion at the conference, as well as a special issue early in 2016 on the conference outcomes. The journal is now welcoming article submissions by law scholars on COP-related themes. Manuscripts may be submitted online. For all inquiries, please contact the Editor.
