    45th Spring Conference

    Hyatt Regency Austin, 1 PM CDT

    Each spring, just as the flowers begin to bloom, the trees begin to bud and the air turns a bit warmer, leading environmental, energy, and resource lawyers, government officials and academics gather to address the key topics of the day for practicing lawyers.  This 45th Spring Conference provides an unprecedented environment to learn the most recent developments that will keep your practice current by helping you to serve your clients effectively, whether you are in private practice, in-house, or with the government.

    Programming includes opportunities to hear panel discussions and debates, which focus on the latest environmental cases before the U.S. Supreme Court, recent developments in air, water, waste and government enforcement issues and “hot topics” in environmental, energy, and resource law.

    Experienced, knowledgeable and stimulating speakers will address topics for litigators and transaction lawyers, including breakout sessions on trial presentation of complex environmental evidence, the allocation of risk in Brownfield transactions, and permitting of infrastructure development projects. The Spring Conference also features speakers from EPA Headquarters and Region 6, as well as the opportunity for you to meet and network with the nation’s top environmental, energy, and natural resource lawyers.

    Please join your friends and colleagues in downtown Austin from March 30 – April 1, 2016. The program begins with a joint public service project with the Water Law Conference attendees on Wednesday afternoon, March 30, and continues with informative CLE sessions, including ethics, on Thursday (March 31) and Friday (April 1).
