    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 7th. 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 veteran environmental attorneys who specialize and those who are brand new to the field, as well as attorneys who occasionally encounter these issues in their practices. The panelists survey the critical new developments in each of the major fields of environmental law, energy law, land use, and related litigation. 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. Keep track of court decisions, current regulations, and pending bills—and spot new ideas for your federal, state, or local practice. Among the topics covered this year are surveys of important court decisions, new programs at EPA and the Massachusetts Attorney General's Office, and presentations on key energy law trends of practical note to attorneys. Hear Keynote Speaker, Martin J. Suuberg, Esq., Commissioner of the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection, discuss recent and pending initiatives. 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. The plenary format gives you the latest information on a variety of hot topics.
