Each summer, ELI convenes a complimentary seminar series that offers an introduction to the legal and policy foundations of environmental protection in the United States. ELI’s Summer School is a series of brown-bag lunch seminars taught by experts in their fields, introducing the audience to the major environmental statutes (including NEPA, Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act, Endangered Species Act, TSCA, RCRA, and CERCLA) and land use law.
Who should attend:The series is designed for undergraduates, law students, and graduate students. The series is also appropriate for professionals seeking an introduction or reintroduction to environmental law and policy.
Clean Air and Climate Change
The Clean Air Act has a major impact on both human health and the economy. The Act and its implementing regulations are at the center of many of the most pressing controversies in environmental law. This event made this complex area accessible by providing real world examples of air quality planning, including permitting programs, standards for mobile sources and special programs developed to improve air quality such as the acid rain program. The speakers also addressed the developments leading to the enactment of the Clean Air Act in 1970 and its 1990 amendments, and the key federal actions being taken under the Clean Air Act to address climate change.
