“With the assistance of an ELP Travel Grant, I recently traveled to San Francisco, CA to attend the Eighth Annual Environmental Law Institute’s Western Boot Camp on Environmental Law on January 24-26, 2012. The three-day intensive training was a wonderful opportunity to learn details involved in environmental law practice from leading private practitioners, government lawyers, and enforcers. Long-days of classes were packed with presentations on the Clean Air Act, the Clean Water Act, the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), renewable energy, environmental liability in business, CERCLA (commonly known as the Superfund), Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), criminal enforcement, environmental ethics, chemicals regulation, and climate change regulations. Networking and discussing practical logistics and contemporary policies with practicing attorneys kept the seminar energy flowing, along with great San Francisco sites. The Boot Camp was a great experience to travel, meet people in the field, and learn environmental law from other valuable perspectives we don’t get in school. Mahalo ELP for a wonderful opportunity!”
