An ELI Public Briefing

Staying on top of the legal and policy developments in the climate change arena is no small task. The Environmental Law Institute provides a series of monthly webinars with national experts on climate law and policy to keep you up to date with short presentations about various sectors, along with time at the end for discussion between the panelists and to answer audience questions.

Our Monthly Climate Change Briefings are a special service to our members, but this year, we will be opening them up to non-members for a fee. To kick-off this year's series, February's Monthly Climate Change Briefing will be free and open to the public. All following installments will be free for ELI members or $25 for non-members.

Topics to be addressed in this month's briefing:

  • The Biden Administration's "pause" on approvals of new LNG export terminals
  • EPA's methane fee rule
