To launch this podcast series, JERL’s Editor Don C Smith interviews Iñigo del Guayo, professor of administrative law at the University of Almeria Spain. For nearly 30 years, Professor del Guayo has been a member of JERL's editorial advisory board, thus putting him in a unique position to explain the history of the journal. In addition, his long history of writing about energy law, particularly as it involves European and international law, makes him especially well-suited to comment on what lies ahead for energy and environmental law, a topic that is explored in this interview.
