We invite you to join legal practitioners from across the Americas (North, Central, South, and the Caribbean) for an Environmental Summit of the Americas on March 29, 2017 in Los Angeles at the Loews Hollywood. Summit participants will discuss pressing issues in environmental, energy, and resources law using a round-table format facilitated by leading environmental lawyers. This program is presented by the ABA Section of Environment, Energy, and Resources (SEER) in conjunction with the International Bar Association’s Section of Energy, Environment, Natural Resources and Infrastructure Law (IBA SEERIL). The Canadian Bar Association's Section of Environmental, Energy and Resource Law (NEERLS) and the American College of Environmental Lawyers (ACOEL) are co-sponsors for the event. IBA members will receive the special discounted rate of $250, check the registration information tab for further details.
This program will cover a broad range of topics, including climate change and energy; extended producer responsibility; officer, director, lender, and parent company liability; permitting and social license; and the impact of trade agreements on the environment. Join us as we connect environmental law leaders and professions from a variety of practice backgrounds to discuss these pressing cross-border issues.
The Summit will be co-located with the ABA SEER’s 46th Spring Conference to allow practitioners to attend both programs and network with top U.S. environmental attorneys. We will kick off the Summit with an optional dinner and reception and conclude with a joint cocktail reception with Spring Conference attendees.
