The Eighth Polar Law Symposium invited participants to consider how polar science and scholarship can combine with the practice of law, broadly understood, to strengthen Arctic peoples and places. How can lawyers and legal scholars interact with scientists and academics from other disciplines to the benefit of the Arctic? Can models of cooperation between scientists, scholars and lawyers from other geographic areas be adapted for the Arctic? What can lawyers and academics from all disciplines contribute to each other’s understanding on issues of common concern? The symposium was co-hosted by Alaska Pacific University (APU), the University of Alaska Fairbanks, the University of Alaska Anchorage (through the Justice Center and the Institute of Social and Economic Research), the University of Washington School of Law, and Vermont Law School, in cooperation with the Arctic Law Section of the Alaska Bar Association.
