West Coast Invites you to an Afternoon with "Earth’s Lawyer", Polly Higgins
You are invited to meet with U.K. Barrister, Polly Higgins, author of the book Eradicating Ecocide.

Come hear about the concept of Ecocide and discuss what it means for environmental law.
When: 1:30pm to 3pm on Tuesday, February 21st
Where: Law Foundation of British Columbia Board Room (1340-605 Robson Street, Vancouver, BC)
