Suggested topics for papers include nuclear relicensing, green building, public nuisance, climate change litigation and ethanol policy.

Papers and questions may be submitted via e-mail to Jeffrey A. Dodge, assistant dean for administration and operations at Hofstra Law:

The author of the winning paper will be honored with a $500 cash prize and the opportunity to speak at the March 19-20 “Energy and the Environment: Empowering Consumers” conference on the Hempstead campus of Hofstra Law. Two honorable mention winners will receive cash prizes of $250 each.
