May 6, 2020


Webinar Only

An ELI ELI Professional Development Webinar

In the second Environmental Law Institute Emerging Leaders Initiative (ELI ELI) Professional Development Webinar, ELI Leadership Council President Kathy Robb will share lessons learned from over 35 years of experience in environmental law and policy through private practice, non-profit environmental law work, and now as the CEO of Blue Access LLC.

Blue Access LLC collaborates with community members to understand their water challenges and invests in locally-driven solutions to ensure water security for all. Prior to becoming the CEO of Blue Access in February, 2020, Kathy was a partner based in New York City at Hunton & Williams, where she co-headed the firm's environmental practice for several years, and subsequently at Sive, Paget & Riesel. In private practice she focused on water and energy law, applying them to both litigation and transactional work across the United States. During this ELI ELI webinar, Kathy explored the professional path that has taken her to water and sustainability issues, and how Blue Access is working to meet the global challenge of clean, adequate water for all in the 21st century.

Kathy is a former ELI Board member and frequently teaches the Clean Water Act segment of ELI's Eastern Boot Camp. Last June, she moderated an ELI program addressing “The Leadership of Women in Developing U.S. Law and Policy: What They Did, What it Meant, and Where it is Going” and her article on “Becoming Tomorrow's Heroes: Women in Environmental Law”' was published in the Nov./Dec. 2019 50th anniversary issue of “The Environmental Forum.”

ELI ELI Professional Development Webinars are for the exclusive benefit of Emerging Leaders.
