A Law of Crisis or A Crisis of Law? The EU Legal Order Under Stress [Audio]
Speaker(s): Professor Neil Walker | The EU’s early success owed much to the law’s understated role as the motor of integration, but a more emphatic legal approach to the recent European crisis has been less successful.

Video -- Exxon Valdez Lessons Applied in Gulf Coast Cleanup
This four minute video explains how the December 3, 2010 leanup techniques used after the 1989 Exxon Valdez oil spill may have caused more environmental damage than the oil itself.
So different strategies—such as washing sand and returning it to
beaches—are helping to clean Gulf of Mexico coasts affected by the oil spill. This could be used as a career video or to show how science can be used in the environment.
