Law 2050 — a new “legal futurism” blog

JB Ruhl at Vanderbilt University has launched a new blog called Law 2050. He describes the blog as “a forum for envisioning the future of law, legal practice, and legal education,” or in shorthand “legal futurism.” That’s obviously not limited to environmental law, but his examples (not to mention the fact that JB has been writing primarily about natural resources and environmental law for the many years he’s been an academic) make it clear that natural resources and environmental law will be one focus. He describes legal futurism as primarily concerned with questions such as:

How will climate change influence property law? How will liability law respond to robotics and human bioengineering? How will energy regulation law need to change to accommodate a renewable energy future?

Looks like an interesting read. Welcome to the blogosphere, JB!
