EEC Environmental staff attended the 25th annual American Bar Association (ABA) Section of Environment, Energy, and Resources Fall Conference in Baltimore, Maryland on October 18-21, 2017.
The ABA Fall Conference gathers professionals who focus on environmental, energy, and natural resource for a premier forum for dialogue and deliberation of current and emerging issues. The four-day conference offered cutting-edge CLE programming, opportunities for networking, plenary sessions, and breakout sessions for the discussion of emerging topics such as the legal landscape of public land management, and the practical insights on food law that impacts environmental law.
Other topics included the status of the Chevron and Auer doctrines and their potential replacements; recent decisions and upcoming cases—how actions by the U.S. Supreme Court might impact your practice, and how cities are effectively implementing resilient and sustainable initiatives.
