Staying on top of the legal and policy developments in the climate change arena is no small task. As a special service to our institutional members, the Environmental Law Institute provides a series of monthly conference calls with national experts on climate law and policy to keep you up to date and to answer your questions.

Topics addressed in this month's call:

  • Litigation update: what's recently transpired and what's on the horizon
  • What Congress might pass and what that may mean for the Paris agreement, Climate Action Plan, Green Climate Fund, Clean Air Act, and KXL pipeline
  • Methane madness
  • Updates from the states (CA, WA, NY, MN, FL, SC)
