An ELI ELI Professional Development Webinar

In the very first Environmental Law Institute Emerging Leaders Initiative (ELI ELI) Professional Development Webinar, ELI Leadership Council member Donald Baur shared lessons learned from forty years of experience in environmental law and policy.

A partner in Perkins Coie LLP’s Environment, Energy and Resources practice, Don has extensive experience in environmental and natural resources law. He previously served as an attorney in the Office of the Solicitor of the U.S. Department of the Interior and as General Counsel of the U.S. Marine Mammal Commission. Don has a special emphasis on water law, wildlife and endangered species, public land and energy resources, protected areas, coastal/ocean law, and Indian law.

Don discussed how environmental law and policy have changed over the last few decades. He also explored how colleagues both within the ELI ELI group and throughout the environmental law and policy sector can have positive impacts on your career. Joining Don was John Pendergrass, Vice President of Programs and Publications at ELI, who shared a brief history of the Environmental Law Institute, the impacts the organization has had on environmental law and policy, and the recent 50th Anniversary of the Institute.

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