Why You Should Attend

Five decades ago -- just after the first national environmental law was passed, ALI CLE and ELI began offering the first national CLE on the subject. Now in our 51st year, we are still at it: helping lawyers understand the key current environmental law issues that their clients need them to know.

Although we can’t gather together in DC this year as we have for the last 50, you can still get the latest developments in air, water, endangered species, climate change, chemicals, renewable energy as well as what’s to come from the newly reconfigured Supreme Court and what may be coming under the Biden-Harris administration and a new Congress. Our national faculty of seasoned private practitioners, governmental officials, law professors, and public interest advocates will keep you current and alert you to changes in the many facets of environmental law affecting your practice and your clients.

What You Will Learn

Expand your comprehensive understanding and be on alert for the changes underway today and in the future. Even if your practice is specialized, this high-level program will brief you on the key issues arising in each of the major areas of environmental law and their intersections. This year’s topics include, but are not limited to:

  • likely priorities of the Biden-Harris administration
  • environmental justice
  • PFAS and other emerging contaminants
  • recent and upcoming environmental cases before the Supreme Court
  • counseling clients before, during, and after natural and man-made disasters
  • climate change litigation and regulation
  • water quality regulation
  • key developments in offshore wind and other renewable permitting

Register today! Don’t miss this opportunity to invest in yourself and your practice.

Who Should Attend

This webcast series will benefit private and governmental attorneys who are engaged in the practice of environmental law as well as environmental consultants, in-house attorneys, and public interest attorneys.
