Hot Off the Press: Russell and Heminway on Representing the Organizational Client on Environmental Matters
My good friend and long-time mentor Irma Russell and I wrote a chapter for the recently released ABA book, Ethics and the Environment: A Lawyer's Guide. Irma also is a co-editor of the book (with Vicki Wright). In our joint contribution, the chapter entitled "Representing the Organizational Client on Environmental Matters," Irma and I cover issues involving professional responsibility, corporate governance, and environmental compliance. Guess which part was my primary responsibility . . . ?!) Covering some 37 pages of the 242-page book, the rules we cover and the observations we make are fairly wide-ranging. We hope, as we noted in our conclusion to the chapter, that we supply legal counsel representing corporations and other organizations with "foundational tools to assist them in providing advisory and advocacy-oriented services to organizational clients in the environmental law context." Irma and I received our copies last week. The book soon will be available through the ABA and other outlets.
