Focus on Ethics, Environment

February saw a panel discussion
dedicated to a unique combination of con-
cepts: ethics and environmental sustainability.
Though the topics bear an obvious relationship, they are not often joined in a law
school symposium. But that was the case in
“Arizona: Exploring Our Legal Landscape,”
a daylong event sponsored by the Women
Law Students’ Association at the ASU
Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law.
The day included a keynote by Judge
Mary Schroeder of the Ninth Circuit Court
of Appeals, as well as panels on diversity and
immigration, and families and social justice.
The afternoon panel, titled
“Sustainability and Ethics,” engaged the
audience on a topic lawyers and law students
may contemplate rarely. The speakers were
two professors at the law school—Dan
Bodansky, Lincoln Professor of Law, Ethics
and Sustainability, and Kristin Mayes, former
Corporation Commissioner and now the
Founding Faculty Director for the school’s
Program on Law and Sustainability. Also
speaking on the panel was Ed Fox, Vice
President and Chief Sustainability Officer at
the utility Arizona Public Service.
