Infrastructure and Regulated Industries Section
The Section brings together members of the bar interested in the rapidly changing legal environment in the communications, electricity, gas, oil pipelines, aviation, nuclear energy, renewable energy, railroads, and water industries. The third oldest Section in the ABA, the Section was established in 1917 when public interest demanded regulation of these fields. All lawyers whose practice involves aspects of the gas, electric, communications, water or transportation industries find the Section's activities of interest. The Section has committees in these areas of practice as well as committees covering ADR, Antitrust, corporate governance and compliance, environmental, mergers, Infrastructure Security, Labor, tax and state regulatory. In addition to committees, the Section offers CLE programs, webinars and publications.
