DC Bar EENR Section and ABA SEER

The DC Bar Environment, Energy and Natural Resources (EENR) Section's Legends of Environmental Law Speaker Series provides an opportunity for conversations with renowned practitioners, academics and other legal professionals who have had a significant impact on environmental law.

As the first speaker of this series, Henry L. Diamond, a Principal of Beveridge & Diamond, P.C. shared insights and lessons learned from his practice in environmental law. Mr. Diamond became New York State's Commissioner of Environmental Conservation in 1970, the nation's first environmental department. From 1963 to 1969, Mr. Diamond was an associate of Laurance S. Rockefeller in his conservation and environmental activities. President Johnson named Mr. Diamond as a member of the Citizen's Advisory Committee on Youth Opportunity. President Nixon appointed him a member of the President's Advisory Committee on Environmental Quality, and he became Chairman of that group in 1973.
