Environmental Regulation and Commercial Implications 2010: How the New Administration, Congress and the Courts Have Changed the Rules
9 a.m. - 5 p.m.
Environmental regulation entered a new world with the election of President Barack Obama and the 111th Congress. New environmental laws have been enacted, new environmental regulations have been promulgated, and courts have issued precedent-setting environmental decisions. All substantially impact what skilled attorneys need to know to assist their clients in matters ranging from environmental regulatory compliance to environmental disclosure and enforcement, to addressing environmental issues in transactional contexts. Seasoned practitioners, governmental officials and environmental consultants who have experience in the new world of environmental regulation will provide practical advice on the implications of this new world of environmental regulation.
This is an issue of growing importance. Christopher Roe will cover recent developments, regulatory focus and stakeholder activism on corporate social responsibility in general and environment-related issues, such as green house gas emissions, in particular.
