Why You Should Attend

Nearly five-and-a-half decades ago – just after the first national environmental law was passed – ALI CLE and ELI began offering the first national CLE on the subject. Now in our 54th year, we are still at it: helping lawyers understand the key current environmental law issues that their clients need them to know.

Join us in 2024 to stay at the forefront of the latest developments in each area of our natural environment (air, water, land, and species), climate, chemical, and environmental justice; and what’s happening at the EPA and other federal agencies, in Congress, the courts, and heading into another presidential election. Our national faculty will keep you current and alert you to changes in the many facets of environmental law affecting your practice and your clients as well as what the future may hold.

Join us in 2024 – in person or on the web – and start the year off with the best investment you could make in yourself and your practice!

What You Will Learn

Expand your comprehensive understanding and be on alert for the changes underway today and in the future. Even if your practice is specialized, this high-level program will brief you on the key developments arising in each of the major areas of environmental law and their intersections.

A faculty of seasoned private practitioners, senior governmental officials, law professors, and public interest advocates will provide balanced perspectives on the most pressing issues facing today’s environmental lawyer. We are excited to kick off the conference by bringing back DOJ Assistant Attorney General Todd Kim and EPA Assistant Administrator David Uhlmann who will provide a joint keynote panel on federal environmental enforcement in 2024.

Other topics for 2024 include:

  • EPA’s National Enforcement and Compliance Initiatives for 2024-2027
  • Legal challenges facing companies relating to PFAS
  • Latest developments regarding air quality standards and new air pollution rules
  • Implementation of the Sackett and Maui decisions
  • Update on NEPA reforms and environmental justice requirements
  • Climate change litigation in state and federal courts
  • ESG and environmental disclosure developments
  • Top trends with respect to the endangered species act and public lands
