2003 Summer School Lecture Series: Clean Water Act
The Environmental Law Institute was pleased to organize 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 wanted 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.
William A. Anderson II (Winston & Strawn), Susan MacIntyre (Winston & Strawn) and Alexandra Dunn (Association of Metropolitan Sewage Agencies) presented an overview of the Clean Water Act.
