    24th Fall Conference

    Westin Denver Downtown, 1 PM MDT

    Environmental, energy, and resources law is in a time of transition, with a wide range of questions being asked by practitioners. How will the Clean Power Plan set a new course for energy? Beyond Paris, where do we go on climate change? What will be the implications of environmental and social disclosures? How do we best address America’s drinking water infrastructure problems? At the 24th Fall Conference in the Mile High City, expert panels will examine these questions and more.

    In addition to attending though-provoking discussions, participants can hone their practice skills with sessions on navigating complex environmental transactions, negotiating environmental provisions in real estate contracts, resolving NRD conflicts, and utilizing advanced trial strategies for an environmental case.

    Denver provides a perfect backdrop for the conference, offering lessons about how a city can rebuild and revitalize. It has transitioned from a city with its share of brownfield areas to an urban haven that attracts thousands of new residents every month. The confluence of Cherry Creek and the South Platte River is now enjoyed by Denverites as Confluence Park. The Rocky Mountain Arsenal, where chemical weapon development led to contamination, has become a federal wildlife refuge. Throughout this revitalization, the energy industry has remained a driver of Denver’s economy.

    Plan to join your colleagues in Denver on October 5–8, 2016, to learn from the best and to network with friends old and new. The conference is designed to engage you, whatever stage in your career or practice setting and wherever you are located.
