19th Section Fall Meeting: The ABA Environment, Energy, and Resources Law Summit

Home to the Indy 500 and the NCAA Hall of Champions, Indianapolis will be the site for the 19th Section Fall Meeting: ABA Environment, Energy, and Resources Law Summit. From new U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) greenhouse gas regulations to the congressional landscape, from nuclear safety to “e-waste” and product stewardship, from hydraulic fracturing to EPA’s current thinking on solid waste, from NEPA to renewable biomass—join your colleagues this October in Indianapolis to learn about these and other hot topics. This year’s meeting will feature updates on key legal and regulatory issues, discussions of cross-cutting policy concerns, unparalleled networking opportunities with other environmental, energy, and resource lawyers from across the country, and a public service project you don’t want to miss. A highlight of the meeting will be an evening at the world-renowned NCAA Hall of Champions.

Our venue will be the new JW Marriott in downtown Indianapolis. The NCAA Hall of Champions is located just across the street and the Indiana State Museum, the Indiana Historical Society, the Eitlejorg Native American Museum, the Indianapolis Zoo, and the White River Gardens are all within walking distance. This is a meeting you don’t want to miss! Bring your favorite team jersey, your walking shoes, and your thinking cap so you can contribute to the discussions!
