Environmental & Energy Litigation

About the Committee


The Environmental & Energy Litigation Committee is dedicated to helping its members become better environmental and energy litigators. Year after year, this committee identifies the legal issues and topics that are at the forefront of the practice and brings together lawyers, judges, consultants, and in-house counsel to teach and inform members. Its publications and social media platforms are cutting-edge, with widespread and diverse reader and participation reach, and offers members opportunities for networking, mentoring, and practice development.

Message from the Chairs

Welcome to the Environmental & Energy Litigation Committee’s webpage! We are excited to provide you with valuable and timely programming and information that will have a direct impact on your practice. As environmental and energy litigators, there is a lot we can learn from each other, and even more that we can do together, and we look forward to fostering that collaboration among our members. Our committee is vibrant, diverse, and inclusive! Members include lawyers from the government, in-house, plaintiffs’ bar, and defense bar. In this message, we want to highlight a few of the great programs we have in store for this bar year.

The 2020 Joint Regional CLE, our flagship annual program, will be held in Snowmass, Colorado, January 29–31, 2020. It promises to be a fun and innovative event with the cutting-edge programming you have come to expect (along with amazing winter activities). We really hope to see all of you there.

In addition to our live CLE programs, we have a number of webinars, roundtables, newsletters, and other deliverables on cutting-edge topics that affect all of our practices. Please check our website often to get the latest updates on all of our programming. And of course, if you have an idea for an article, practice point, book, program, or topic, we would love to hear from you. Please do not hesitate to reach out to any one of us with your thoughts and ideas.

We have a number of subcommittees, listed below, that focus on specific practice areas and topics, and we encourage you to join and become an active participant in subcommittee activities. We know our members have valuable insights to share from their own professional experiences, and, through subcommittee involvement, you can help educate your fellow members and improve the quality of the content we provide.

New members are always welcome! If you have friends or colleagues who might be interested in our Environmental & Energy Litigation Committee, please encourage them to join and get involved. We also invite you to encourage new and young lawyers to become members. It’s easy to join!
