    Product Description

    Serious environmental and land use attorneys know that MCLE’s Annual Environmental, Land Use & Energy Law Conference is “the place to be” on February 8th. Join your colleagues at this premier event to learn what happened in the legislature, state agencies, and courts, and what’s new at the municipal level. Find out what you need to know for your clients and your career, and catch up on what you missed during this busy year. 

    The Conference is designed for both attorneys who have been coming, or practicing in the field, for years as well as for those new to this practice area. For those who have attended the Conference in prior years, attending annually refreshes your knowledge and helps keep you up-to-date on the latest developments. And for those new to the Conference, attending is a great way to broaden and deepen your knowledge by learning from well-known experts who have been tracking trends, cases, and statutory changes of which you need to be aware. 

    Among the topics covered this year are surveys of important court decisions, new programs and initiatives at EPA and DEP, and presentations on key energy law trends of practical note to attorneys. The agenda concludes with a roundup of significant evolving practice areas affecting environmental and land use clients. 

    Leading practitioners in the field and accomplished MCLE speakers and authors share their practical expertise. Get what you need directly from the experts.
