    23rd Fall Conference

    Swissotel Chicago, 7 AM CDT

    We are bringing together the leading environmental, energy, and resource lawyers in the U.S. to address cutting edge and practical knowledge topics regarding recent developments in the key areas that affect your practice.  The ABA Section of Environment, Energy and Resources, for the 23rd year, will provide you the opportunity to hear from and meet speakers drawn from the very best lawyers, government officials, in-house counsel and academics.  2015 will be a key year for a wide range of major regulatory proposals and another year of much anticipated Supreme Court and appellate court decisions that will be analyzed and explained by the diverse range of experienced speakers allowing you to better serve your clients.  This Fall Conference will once again be an unparalleled networking opportunity with colleagues from across the country.

    This is the first time the Fall Conference has been held in Chicago, the architectural gem on Lake Michigan, an international hub for industry, commerce and transportation in addition to being the home to U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Region 5.  In the heart of the country, with so many great restaurants and entertainment venues, Chicago promises to be a superb location enhancing what will be a not-to-miss learning and networking experience for the 23rd Fall Conference.
