In the run-up to the United Nations' 15th Conference on Climate Change, COP15, in Copenhagen, the University of Copenhagen has hosted an international negotiation competition for law students - The Copenhagen Competition. The competition is a chance for law students from various places of the world to present their innovative ideas. By the end of 2008, 14 teams of students and a coach from 14 different law faculties from selected universities all over the world, representing five continents, submitted their written proposals for the Written Round of the competition. This book presents the 14 papers which are all of a very high quality. They all demonstrate comprehensive understanding of the legal problems related to the emissions trading system and the international framework as such. Moreover, the creativity in argumentation and the innovative solutions developed by the teams have gone beyond all expectations. Further, the practicalities of the proposals seem to a wide extent operational. We are therefore convinced that this publication may serve as inspiration and support for politicians, advisors and researchers in the further work towards COP15. This is indeed the purpose of this book.
