(Go On! is an occasional item on symposia and other events of interest)

The Georgia Journal of International and Comparative Law will present a symposium entitled "Striking the Right Balance: Energy Security in International Law" this Friday, February 3, here at my home institution, the University of Georgia School of Law.

Meyer, along with Pace Law Professor Elizabeth Burleson (left), an IntLawGrrls contributor, and Susan Sakmar, an Adjunct Professor at the University of San Francisco School of Law.

Will be interesting to analyze the WTO Agreements and principles relating to national treatment, MFN, and subsidies in the context of energy security. May be Panel 2 and 3 will dwell into this especially in the context of renewable energy and possible trade conflicts. Would be nice to be able to access the Symposium's papers once completed.
