Special Institute on

Today’s Environmental Agencies: Regulatory Enforcement, Citizen Suits, and the Natural Resources Industries

In the event of an environmental crisis, you need to know how to protect the interests of your company or client, work with government agencies and stakeholders, maintain your social license to operate, and manage risk and potential liabilities. With recent administrative changes, there are lingering questions about best approaches and the expectations agencies have of industry participants. Being equipped to respond to an agency investigation, potential enforcement action, or citizen suit—and to meet the expectations of regulatory regimes—can save vital resources down the road. And if you are employed by a government agency or environmental NGO, knowing the extent of your claims and remedies is crucial.

Whether you work for an oil and gas, mining, or renewable energy company, a government agency or NGO, an environmental consulting firm, or a law firm that represents any of these parties, you will find this course extremely valuable. Join our expert faculty of industry professionals, natural resource attorneys, environmental experts, and government officials for their presentations, papers, and discussions of these topics.
