    47th Spring Conference

    8 AM EDT

    The ABA Section of Environment, Energy, and Resources’ 47th Spring Conference will explore key topics and issues confronting environmental, energy, and resources lawyers today. Join us in Orlando, Florida at the beautiful Hilton Bonnet Creek Resort, April 18-20, 2018 to gain practical knowledge from the nation’s leading practitioners, top government officials, in-house counsel and academics on key topics including: an update on Trump’s first year, current Supreme Court jurisprudence, Superfund reform, environmental permitting, microgrids, interstate water disputes, citizen science, and tribal consultation.

    The conference has consistently been the premier forum for dialogue among environmental, energy and resources lawyers. This year we are conveniently located adjacent to the Walt Disney World Resort offering the backdrop for a spring break to remember. All attendees, as well as friends and family members traveling with you, are eligible for specially priced theme park tickets which are also available for pre- and post-conference stays!

    Connect, share ideas, and gather insight with thought leaders from around the country and enjoy unparalleled networking opportunities that our attendees have grown to love such as the public service project, #SEERRunClub, networking, the Section dinner and reception, and the Taste of SEER (dine-arounds). Join us in Orlando for unmatched CLE programming and networking and maybe stay for a little Disney magic.
