We would like to thank the following sponsors for supporting our vision and making Three Degrees possible:

Linden Rhoads Dean’s Innovation Fund: Linden Rhoads established the Dean’s Innovation Fund at the University of Washington School of Law. The Linden Rhoads Dean’s Innovation Fund is an endowed fund that supports a wide range of activities to help the school raise its national reputation. This visionary fund encourages important thinking and dialogue on cutting edge questions of law and policy, drawing to the law school leading academics and important policy makers.

The Gates Public Service Law Program: Created in honor of William H. Gates Sr., a prominent Washington state attorney and public servant, the Gates Public Service Law Program awards five scholarships on an annual basis to first year students entering the UW School of Law J.D. program. The presence of this program at the UW School of Law cements our institution’s commitment to public service and enhances the experience of the entire law school and university community.

The University of Washington School of Law: Recently ranked 8th best public interest law school in the country, the University of Washington School of Law is committed to excellence in teaching, scholarship, and public service. The teaching - emphasizing small classes and an accessible faculty - provides a solid foundation in legal doctrine, research skills, and lawyering skills through clinical and simulated programs. The curriculum also develops jurisprudential, interdisciplinary, comparative, and multicultural perspectives on law and legal institutions. The School capitalizes on the resources of other academic units of the University and the unique opportunities of the Pacific Northwest to offer graduates programs which also enhance the J.D. program in Asian and Comparative Law, Tax Law, Law of Sustainable International Development, and Law Librarianship.

We still need additional sponsors to ensure that this conference is a success. If you wish to make a contribution, please contact the conference organizers at: climateconference2009@gmail.com.
