Environmental Law Conference at Yosemite®
Tenaya Lodge at Yosemite
The State Bar Environmental Law Section is pleased to offer the Michael H. Remy Scholarship.
In his nearly thirty years of private practice, Michael Remy represented a wide variety of public and private clients as well as nonprofit organizations. Michael assisted large corporations and small entrepreneurs alike in various permitting and environmental matters throughout the state. Many counties, cities, and special districts relied on Remy’s counsel in the processing, environmental review, and litigation of large and small projects. Some of his most notable environmental accomplishments were: heading the successful political and legal efforts to shut down the Rancho Seco Nuclear Power Plant; and representing the Sierra Club and William Hewlett against the conversion of Shirley Canyon to a commercial ski run by the Squaw Valley Ski Corporation. In 1990, the Environmental Council of Sacramento named Remy “Environmentalist of the Year.”
Remy was widely admired and loved by his colleagues, friends and family, who regarded him as a man of extraordinary intelligence, personal integrity, kindness, and generosity. Remy’s warm presence is sorely missed by everyone at Remy Moose Manley, LLP, but even in his absence, his memory continues to provide guidance and inspiration.
This scholarship, sponsored by Remy Moose Manley, LLP in memory of former Environmental Law Section member and advisor, Michael H. Remy, includes tuition, travel and room for the 2017 Environmental Law Conference at Yosemite®. There are up to five (5) scholarships of this type available, which is designed primarily, though not exclusively, for law students.
The State Bar Environmental Law Section offers two types of scholarships to the Yosemite Conference—the Michael H. Remy Scholarship, and tuition-only scholarships.
Scholarship applications were available at the Environmental Law Section’s website (see 2017 Scholarship Application Form) and were accepted from March 29 to July 13, 2017. The application period is now closed.
Scholarship awardees will be notified after August 21, 2017.
The Section thanks the following contributors for their support of the 2017 Yosemite Conference Scholarship program.
