More than five 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 52nd year, we are still at it: helping lawyers understand the key current environmental law issues that their clients need them to know.
Although we’re staying online again in 2022, you can still get the latest developments in natural resources (air, water, species), climate, chemical, energy, and environmental justice; and what’s happened a year into a new Congress, a more conservative Supreme Court, and under the Biden-Harris administration, as well as what the future holds. 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.
Exploring a full range of cutting-edge issues and drawing professionals from across the country, this annual conference is “the place to be” for all eminent domain and land use practitioners. Whether your interests include relocation, regulatory takings, inverse condemnation, or valuation issues, topics abound for everyone through a customizable curriculum.
Experienced practitioner? Choose from dual afternoon tracks addressing key issues in substantive takings law, or choose from an array of sessions chock full of practice pointers. New to the practice, or need a refresher? Attend the Condemnation 101 “bootcamp” sessions on Thursday, and then join the other attendees for the rest of the conference’s more advanced sessions. Either way, you’ll learn from recognized and experienced professionals representing the diverse stakeholders in these cases.
This year’s topics will dive into 3 Supreme Court opinions from the most recent term: Cedar Point Nursery v. Hassid, Pakdel v. City and County of San Francisco, and PennEast Pipeline Co. v. New Jersey. We'll also have a keynote address from Arizona State law professor Karen Bradshaw who will discuss "Do Animals Have Property Rights?" Other topics include:
