Key Legal Issues Facing the Administration in 2013: Environment, Energy & Natural Resources


February 27, 2013


Washington, DC

What effects will the second Obama Administration have on environmental law, policy, and practice in 2013? What are the implications of a new EPA Administrator for current regulatory trends? What priorities will the new Administration place on public land development and conservation? How will the US energy policy change, if at all?

Four expert practitioners were invited to have an "inside-baseball" discussion about upcoming policies and regulatory agendas at the Environmental Protection Agency, the Department of Justice, Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, and the Department of Interior, among other regulatory agencies.

John Cruden, President, Environmental Law Institute, and former Deputy Assistant Attorney General, Environment and Natural Resources Division, Department of Justice (moderator)
Scott Fulton, Visiting Scholar, Environmental Law Institute, and most immediate past General Counsel, Environmental Protection Agency
Suedeen G. Kelly, Partner, Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP, and former Commissioner, Federal Energy Regulatory Commission
William H. Meadows, Counselor, and former President, The Wilderness Society
