Environmental Law Conference at Yosemite®

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 for four days of legal education and collegiality in Yosemite when we open our registration in 2024.

Due to circumstances outside of our control, rather than our typical October timeframe, the Environmental Law Section will be holding the 2024 Environmental Law Conference at Yosemite® on September 12-15, 2024.  We are excited for the opportunity to have the conference in the waning (or warmer) days of summer.
