Views from the Chair: Section global initiatives help shape the Section’s premier forum role

Vol. 45 No. 3

William L. Penny is a member of the Environmental, Natural Resources and Energy Service Group of Stites & Harbison PLLC in Nashville and is chair of the ABA’s Section of Environment, Energy, and Resources.

The ABA’s Section of Environment, Energy, and Resources provides numerous benefits and resources for our Section members and members of the ABA at large. Less may be known of our work with international partners and global initiatives on rule of law and sustainability. This work includes our participation with the World Justice Project® (WJP), our coordination with the Canadian Bar Association’s National Environment, Energy and Resources Law Section (NEERLS), and the Section’s leadership on the ABA’s Presidential Task Force on Sustainability. These efforts by Section members help broaden our view of environment, energy, and resources law and strengthen our mission as the premier forum in these areas.
