Environmental, Land Use, Real Estate, and Energy attorneys representing clients in eastern Massachusetts are facing a multitude of challenges in an ever-changing physical and regulatory world.  Lawyers for alternative energy companies, developers, property owners, municipalities, utilities, and others with interests along the coast must understand all aspects of these changes: the natural forces that are driving them, the impacts of regulatory reform meant to address them, and the implications of related litigation.

This program will provide attendees with a comprehensive overview of the evolving science, regulatory schemes, and legal issues associated with climate change and renewable energy sources in the coastal zone.  Panelists will also discuss important related legal considerations and developments in the areas of regulatory reform; Chapter 91 licensing; Article 97 rights; beach erosion, accretion and access; and property and development rights.

Specific Topics:

I. Climate Change / Adaptation
II. Renewable Energy / Regulatory Reform
III. Regulatory Reform and Litigation


CLE Credits: 3 credit hours
