The Board of Advisors for UNC Law School’s Center for Climate, Energy, Environment, and Economics (CE3) is a diverse group of experts that include in-house counsel, private sector attorneys, public policy experts, former government officials, scholars, and students.

The faculty and staff at CE3 rely on the Board of Advisors to provide intellectual and organizational support to CE3 in the execution of its mission. The members of the CE3 Board of Advisors function as 1) liaisons to some of CE3’s constituencies, such as entities interested in and dependent on research prepared by CE3 in, or at, the intersection of, climate, energy, environment, and economic development, 2) as repositories of information that may have an effect on the work of CE3, and 3) as supporters of CE3’s mission.

The Advisory Board will meet at least once per year at an annual meeting to discuss CE3’s plan for projects, workshops, and strategic partnerships for the coming year and the long term. The Advisory Board is also kept abreast of, and invited to participate in, programs sponsored by CE3.
