ABA SEER's 21st Fall Conference: Water, Wind, Waste, and More: Navigating New Tides in Environment, Energy, and Resource Regulation

Wednesday, October 9, 2013 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM
Hilton Baltimore - 401 W Pratt St, Baltimore, MD

 

Description:

Are you wondering how the 2012 election is going to impact your environmental, energy and resource practice over the next few years? Then you need to join us at the American Bar Association Section of Environment, Energy, and Resources (SEER) Fall Conference at the Hilton in Baltimore on October 9-12, 2013.

Our plenary sessions will focus on the Administration's expected priorities over the coming months and recent changes in leadership in the agencies and on the Hill. Given our location in Baltimore, we will have a breakout session examining EPA’s recent efforts to regulate nutrients and stormwater going into the Chesapeake Bay and whether those efforts are likely to provide a model for other parts of the country. Other breakout sessions will bring you up-to-date on recent developments under the primary environmental statutes, including Clean Air, Clean Water, CERCLA, and RCRA, as well as on renewable energy and fracking issues. We will have additional breakout sessions focused on legal issues associated with superstorms and natural disasters, as well as panels on enforcement and compliance, environmental litigation, and environmental markets.

Our conference will begin on Wednesday morning with a community service project and continue in the afternoon with an interactive program in which a panel of in-house counsel will discuss what they are looking for when selecting outside counsel. Come hear about the types of mistakes that firms frequently make when they get “chopped.” Then prior to the welcome reception on Wednesday evening, join us for a special keynote address by Kenneth R. Feinberg, Feinberg Rozen, LLP, Washington, DC, about using the law to respond to unique catastrophes.

The Fall Conference is the premier forum for learning about recent developments in the environmental, energy, and resource fields, networking with your colleagues, and meeting prominent government, industry, and private practice leaders.
