ELI Summer School: Hazardous Waste and Sites

Thursday, July 21, 12-2pm
Environmental Law Institute (1730 M Street NW, Suite 700)

Environmental law has brought about a sea change in how we manage waste. Faculty will explore both the dense regulatory efforts and the simple liability efforts used to bring about this change with emphasis on:

  • the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), and
  • the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA).

The speakers will discuss events that led to the enactment of CERCLA and address uncertainties that still exist in RCRA, such as the definition of waste and the rules for recycling.

Faculty:
Adam Riedel, Associate, Manatt, Phelps & Phillips, LLP

Registration Required by July 18: http://www.eli.org/events/hazardous-waste-and-sites-eli-summer-school-2016

ELI Summer School: Law & Policy of Products Regulation

Thursday, July 28, 12-2pm
Environmental Law Institute (1730 M Street NW, Suite 700)

The life cycle of industrial, agricultural, and antimicrobial chemical products, especially those embedded in consumer products, has gained increasing public attention. Regulators are beginning to look at the entire product life cycle, including after the discard of a product at the end of its useful life, not just toxicity data. This course will:

  • examine the regulation of chemicals that are used in industrial and consumer products, as well as pesticides, and
  • describe the new governance and stewardship initiatives being considered globally by a wide variety of stakeholders to diminish the potential for adverse effects from chemicals.

Faculty:
Lynn Bergeson, Managing Partner, Bergeson & Campbell, P.C.

Registration Required by July 25: http://www.eli.org/events/law-policy-products-regulation-eli-summer-school-2016
