Webinar: What is Environmental Law and How it Might Help Your (yes, your!) Own Practice

Please share:

May 18, 2022 @ 5:00 pm 6:00 pm

1 Participatory MCLE Credits

Environmental law is surprisingly diverse. It crosses over with practice areas including: probate, real estate, insurance, criminal, and others.  We’ll discuss real-world scenarios where we see these types of practice areas intersect, and when it makes sense to bring on an environmental lawyer. Learn about people, places, and things that you encounter in your daily lives and in your legal practice where environmental laws might be at play, and how to identify when your client might have an environmental law issue on their hands. We will discuss issues that we see our clients struggle with, that other practice areas will recognize, and part of this webinar will focus on how to identify issues before they become actual problems, no matter what type of law you practice.  Time will be reserved to exchange ideas with participants on best practices, questions, and networking. 

Member Price – $55.00
Non-Member Price – $75.00
