David Hunter Emcees the World Bank Inspection Panel's 20th Anniversary Dinner

The World Bank Inspection Panel turned 20 last week and in honor of this occasion, there was a celebratory dinner on September 24. Professor David Hunter, who was one of the people who advocated for the creation of the Inspection Panel and was instrumental in its development, served as the emcee for the evening, which featured a speech by Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi. Many environmental and human rights lawyers and advocates who work on improving the accountability mechanisms and bring cases to them attended the celebration dinner. Among those attending were two of our adjunct professors (Natalie Bridgeman Fields and Katie Redford) and other friends of the WCL Environmental Law Program!
