2004 Summer School Lecture Series: Chemical 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.
Lynn L. Bergeson (Bergeson & Campbell, P.C.) guided the audience through the thicket of federal statutes, regulatory programs, and the agencies that implement and manage the manufacture, processing and use of chemical substances.
Ms. Bergeson is co-founder of Bergeson & Campbell, P.C., a Washington, DC law firm concentrating on chemical, medical device, and diagnostic product approval, chemical product defense, and related business matters. Ms. Bergeson’s practice includes chemical regulation under TSCA and FIFRA, and related compliance, litigation, and counseling matters under these statutes and RCRA, CAA, and OSHA. Ms. Bergeson works extensively on domestic and international chemical regulatory and litigation matters involving a wide range of agencies including EPA, NTP, Health/Environment Canada, WHO, and others. Ms. Bergeson is admitted to the bar of the District of Columbia, and various Federal and DC Circuit Courts.
