Environmental Law -- ALI-ABA CLE

41st Annual ALI-ABA Course of Study
Cosponsored by the Environmental Law Institute (ELI) and The Smithsonian Institution
Wednesday-Friday February 2-4, 2011 Washington Plaza Hotel Washington, DC

The 41st anniversary presentation of this annual program, featurs more than 15 hours of instruction, looks at legislative initiatives, regulatory changes, and new precedent issued during the first half of the Obama administration.

A series of optional introductory lectures on the Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act, and CERCLA on the Wednesday evening before the first full day of the course provide some grounding for newer attorneys and a refresher for more experienced attorneys.

On the heels of the Gulf Coast oil spill, the course features a panel that discusses lessons learned from various perspectives, including the Department of the Interior.

In addition to more advanced presentations on the subjects covered during the introductory lectures, a faculty of seasoned practitioners, federal government representatives (including the EPA, DOJ, and Department of the Interior), law professors, and professionals from advocacy organizations bring you up-to-date on:

Climate change in the courts and state and federal administrations

Citizen suits and the latest government enforcement initiatives

Congressional and U.S. Supreme court developments

NEPA and environmental justice

Water resources, quality, and wetlands

International environmental compliance matters involving global supply chains

Ethical issues (one hour)

A reception on Thursday evening gives you an additional opportunity to network with the faculty and other registrants. Time is reserved throughout the program to address questions from the registrants.
