Each year, the ABA's Section of Environment, Energy, and Resources holds an annual Fall Meeting that provides some of the highest quality programming available on emerging issues in environmental law. It's also a fantastic opportunity to network with colleagues and other experts in the field.
This year, the 20th Annual Fall Meeting, looks to prove no different. The meeting will be held in Austin, Texas from October 10-13. It is set to feature a number of fascinating panels (a number of which should be particularly interesting if, like me, you love all things energy). A few highlights include:
- Keystone XL Pipe Dreams: Game On or Game Over?
- Environmental Law Before the Supreme Court
- Greenhouse Gas Update: EPA Rule Challenges, Cap and Trade, LCFS, Common Law Litigation, and Public Trust
- Energy, Environment, and Politics in 2012: Expectations and Prognostications for the Next Four Years
- Social Media and Environmental, Energy, and Resource Lawyers
- Environmental Impacts of Oil and Gas Production in Shale Formations: Policy, Perception, and Reality
- Waiting for the Next Big Bang: ERCOT as the U.S. Grid in Microcosm
On top of this, the meeting coincides with the Austin City Limits Music Festival, so you can add some phat grooves to your environmental law diet (e.g., Florence + the Machine, Alabama Shakes, Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Black Keys, The Shins, Weezer, The Boxer Rebellion, Gotye, and more).
