The Environmental Law Conference at Yosemite® is nationally recognized as the largest and most prestigious gathering in California of leaders in environmental, land use, and natural resources law. We hope you will join us and many of our nation’s top environmental officials, lawyers, and other professionals in the spectacular setting of Yosemite.
Save the date for 2020!
October 15-18, 2020
With both disappointment and excitement, we have decided to convert this year’s Environmental Law Conference at Yosemite into a virtual conference. We’re disappointed because the annual conference has become a cultural event, a place to meet and continue relationships with people from all walks of our practice—consultants, regulators, students, attorneys from all sectors, and people who are simply interested in environmental law. In such difficult times, the idea of heading to Yosemite in October provided some hope of normalcy and fellowship. The reality, however, is that there are too many uncertainties about public health, our economy, and even our ability to freely enjoy Yosemite National Park. Even an in-person conference would be unlikely to deliver the true “Yosemite” Conference experience.
But more than disappointed, the Environmental Law Section is energized and excited by the opportunity to plan a conference that is more geographically and financially accessible to all. Since March, we’ve been looking at ways to maintain the Yosemite vibe in a virtual world. We envision a conference that includes a mix of educational panels, fun activities, opportunities for networking and socializing and, if permitted, some smaller in-person activities.
For now, please continue to save October 15-18, 2020 for this year’s conference. And if you have ideas to share on how to take advantage of the opportunities a virtual conference offers, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
