2004 Summer School Lecture Series: Solid and Hazardous Waste Regulation
The Environmental Law Institute hosted a series of free lectures in Washington, DC to provide an introduction to the legal foundations of environmental protection in the United States. Summer law clerks, interns, and others who would want to acquire a working knowledge of the basics were invited to attend. Each presentation was made by an experienced practitioner and provided an overview of the history, main provisions, and essential vocabulary of the specific statute.
John Turner (Environmental Law Institute) spoke at the final 2004 ELI Summer School session on the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act.
John H. Turner, Jr. is Vice-President at ELI, where he is responsible for the Institute’s treatise, deskbook, and environmental reporting offerings and serves as Editor-in-Chief of the Environmental Law Reporter. Previously, he served as Divisional Vice-President, Browning-Ferris Industries, as counsel to a trade association, and as an attorney in private practice, where much of his work involved environmental (particularly RCRA, CERCLA, and CWA) law and defense of product liability, toxic tort, and related individual and class action claims. He has authored over 40 articles in law reviews and other legal publications on environmental, constitutional, tort, and land use issues and is a frequent speaker at legal conferences.
