Environmental Law 2019 Cosponsored by the Environmental Law Institute

The Environmental Law program features a national faculty of experienced private practitioners, senior government officials, law professors and public int­erest advocates who bring a balance of perspectives during panel discussions surrounding the important developments taking place in each major area of environmental law.

Conference topics include:

  • Litigation and regulation involving emerging contaminants
  • Whether groundwater discharges are subject to Clean Water Act liability

  • What changes to the Endangered Species Act may be imminent following the proposed rule from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service

“For this year’s program we have once again assembled a stellar faculty drawn from government, academia, non-governmental organizations, and private practice,” said Pamela Esterman and Daniel Riesel, planning co-chairs and partners at Sive, Paget & Riesel, P.C. in New York City. “The course will provide an update on critical new developments in environmental law, highlight what to expect from the current administration, and explore the more difficult substantive issues relating to each of the critical regulatory programs.”
