ELI’s Annual Eastern 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 Eastern 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: NEPA, ESA, CWA, civil and criminal enforcement, TSCA, FIFRA, energy law, CAA, RCRA, CERCLA, due diligence in transactions, and ethics.

Please note: ELI's Boot Camp on Environmental Law® is available only to the member firms and organizations of ELI’s Professional, Corporate, and Public Interest Programs and to individual ELI Associates Program members. Membership status must be current through the month of the course. We encourage early enrollment as space is limited. Those seeking CLE can earn almost 20 hours for a reasonable fee, with special discounts provided to government, academic, and public interest employees.

Meeting the United Nations’ target of a net zero carbon society by 2050 will require a thorough reworking of how we generate, distribute, and use energy as well as how we manage water. One of the most promising, cost-effective sets of solutions to come out of the information and communications technology (ICT) sector is the “digitalization” of energy and water services.

Metaphorically, analysts talk of how ICT applications project a “handprint” that can help reduce the climate and water “footprint” of other sectors. And collectively, the environmental and social benefits that digitalization offers—its handprint—could outweigh the negative impacts. How do we harness this technology to its fullest potential? Join experts from the ICT, water, and NGO worlds at this free, November 17 webinar to learn about the digital handprint and how public policies can help maximize its contribution to climate and water solutions.
