Summer School: Climate Change: An Introduction
The Environmental Law Institute &
DC Bar’s Environment, Energy and Natural Resources Section
Each summer the ELI Summer School holds a series of seminars about the legal foundations of environmental protection in the United States. The series begins with an afternoon careers seminar and networking event, and continues with weekly lunchtime seminars that are taught by experts working in major arenas of environmental law and policy: air, water, land use, hazardous sites/substances, products, and climate change.
Climate change is a large topic and can be approached from many angles. In this introductory conversation, Patrick Traylor, Partner of Hogan Lovells, and David Doniger, policy director of NRDC's climate center, shared their diverse perspectives on the history and development of climate change law and policy, discussing the aspects of climate change that they considered most important.
