Each summer, ELI convenes a complimentary seminar series that offers an introduction to the legal and policy foundations of environmental protection in the United States.
ELI's Summer School is a series of seminars taught by experts in their fields, introducing the audience to the major environmental statutes, including the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), Clean Air Act (CAA), Clean Water Act (CWA), Endangered Species Act (ESA), Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA), Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), and Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA); land use law; energy law; and environmental justice. Faculty will also incorporate major regulatory and judicial updates to the laws.
Who will benefit: All are welcome. Students and emerging professionals will have unique opportunities to learn, hear updates, ask questions, and network. The series is intended for:
- law students and graduate students, and
- working professionals new to or looking for a refresher course in environmental law (such as interns, summer clerks, and associates, or second-career professionals).
Basics of Land Use and Energy Law
Land and energy use touches numerous aspects of daily life. Embodying a range of laws and regulations across federal, state, and local levels, land use and energy law impacts development, conservation, climate, environmental justice, and more. Expert faculty will explore the history of land and energy use, and recent trends in approaches to planning energy developments. This session focuses on the primary elements of land use and energy law, including:
- foundations of land use and energy law
- legal frameworks
- renewable energy
A recording of this session will be posted to this page, usually within three business days of the live event.
