ELI’s Annual Western Boot Camp on Environmental Law® is an overview of environmental law from the top experts in the field. Boot Camp is designed primarily for attorneys and environmental managers new to environmental law, although more experienced professionals have found the course provides an efficient update as well. While the course has a strong legal focus, it is accessible to professionals other than lawyers, including corporate environmental managers, paralegals, and technical staff who would benefit from a more thorough understanding of environmental law.

ELI’s Western Boot Camp on Environmental Law® is led by carefully selected senior practitioners and environmental managers who provide a practical and pragmatic view of environmental law and policy issues likely to be encountered by those working in the field. Annual topics include sessions on: the Clean Air Act, the Clean Water Act, project development and NEPA, environmental liability in business, CERCLA, RCRA, criminal enforcement, environmental ethics, product regulation, and a discussion of recent developments in climate change.
