The goal of this primer is to provide an overview of environmental law, principally at the federal level. The course begins with a brief overview the purpose of environmental law and regulation, and the interplay of federal, state and local laws. The course explains environmental law practice before the relevant agencies, such as the Environmental Protection Agency, including the rulemaking process and “sue and settle,” the appeals process, and enforcement and litigation. The faculty will then provide an overview of the key federal environmental laws and their impact on the energy industry; the laws addressed will cover the major statutes (National Environmental Policy Act, Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act, etc.), and for each they will address who regulates, who is regulated, what is regulated, and how it is regulated. Finally, they will address environmental law considerations in project development, system operations, and energy transactions (in particular, how environmental law factors into transaction due diligence).

This course is intended for new energy lawyers practicing environmental law and energy transaction lawyers who need an overview of environmental laws and regulations.

Thomas A. Lorenzen will be speaking at this event. His topics: "Overview of Environmental Law," "Key Federal & State Environmental Laws and Their Impact on The Energy Industry," and "Agency Practice."
