The American Law Institute-American Bar Association presents Clean Air: Law, Policy, and Practice. The seminar is Thursday and Friday, December 1 and 2, at the offices of Arnold & Porter, 555 Twelfth Street, NW in Washington, DC. Day one begins at 8:00 a.m. and ends at 5:15 p.m. Day two begins at 8:30 a.m. and the conference adjourns at 3:44 p.m.
With an election year ahead, the Clean Air Act is at the center of the debate over the environment and job growth. At stake is the immediate and long term future of the intersection between environmental, energy, and economic policy. The present administration has moved aggressively in some areas and retreated in others, from New Source Review to enforcement, from Title V to National Ambient Air Quality Standards, from interstate pollution to the state/federal partnership in controlling air pollution, and from hazardous air pollutant regulation to climate change.
The course will allow participants to take away a timely, in-depth analysis of the new direction and the major issues arising under the Clean Air Act, the principal federal statute addressing air quality. The program provides a unique opportunity to hear from administration representatives and policymakers, as well as from observers from the states, private sector, and the environmental community.
Among the speakers are John C. Cruden (keynote), president, Environmental Law Institute; Philip A. Brooks, director, Air Enforcement Division, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency; Roy S. Belden, senior vice president, GE Energy Financial Services; and David M. Uhlmann, Jeffrey F. Liss professor from practice and director, Environmental Law and Policy Program, University of Michigan Law School.
