Over the years, the United States has made significant progresses through environmental law in certain areas. These progresses have influenced and shaped developments of other legal systems in environmental field when the world has become increasingly like a global village. The Policy and Law Center for Environmental Sustainability College of Law (PLES), National Taiwan University, is honored to have invited Professor E. Donald Elliott from Yale Law Scholl to discuss the U.S. environmental law in global perspective. The Review is particularly honored to have obtained Professor Elliott's permission to publish this roundtable. In his lecture, Professor Elliott describes the five best features of American environmental law and then mentions the five worst things that other legal systems should avoid. His insightful discussion is sure to shed a new light on our understanding of environmental law in the United States and its influences over other legal systems around the world.
