The Road Ahead: The Obstacles and Pitfalls to New Jersey’s Implementation of the LSRP Program -- ABA CLE

This live ABA Continuing Legal Education program is an interactive seminar involving nationally known environmental lawyers, in-house counsel and consultants who will discuss the details and implications of New Jersey’s Site Remediation Reform Act, in particular the Licensed Site Remediation Professional Program. The impact of this program on environmental practitioners will be far reaching and extraordinary. From the manner in which environmental consultants will be retained and site investigations & clean-ups accomplished, to the ethical, work product and litigation considerations counsel will need to evaluate and address, the LSRP Program represents a sea-change in the way environmental counsel will practice their trade in the years to come.

Issues to be addressed include:
• A summary of New Jersey's SRRA/LSRP, an overview of the privilege/ethics issues raised by this program and an out of state attorney's view of how a similar program works in other states.
• Legal issues that need to be clarified and addressed in order for New Jersey's program to be effective, including contractual issues, risk management and liability issues, agency issues and the independence of the LSRP.
