A Discussion Series Presented by the Environmental Law Section and New Lawyers Section, California Lawyers Association

Interested in the practice of environmental law? Running into environmental issues in another area of law? The Environmental Law Section (ELS) and the New Lawyers Section (NLS) of the California Lawyers Association (CLA) are excited to co-present this free series covering key practice areas within the environmental legal field. This series is geared toward law students, new lawyers, and even experienced attorneys interested in learning more about environmental law.

Participants will receive a “101” level introduction to the practice area from private, government, and non-profit lawyers. Each panel will include a high-level overview of the basic legal framework, real-life project examples, and a question-and-answer session for attendees to meet members practicing in the field.

This Climate Change Law 101 session is in advance of the Climate Change Conference to be held on Friday, April 7 at UC Davis School of Law. We hope you can attend!

Be on the lookout for more series programs this summer.  Watch last year’s Environmental Law 101 Series HERE.
