Environmental law is a great fit for our Six-Minute format because it's diverse and dynamic. Our presenters can hone in on a niche development in one moment, and pull back for a wider perspective in another. They cover the key cases and policies and highlight exactly what you need to know: from the Huang decision at the Court of Appeal on the EPA statutory cause of action and tort claims, to managing two sets of standards with the new excess soil rules, to the ERT decision in SEJJ Environmental Solutions and its implications for settlement, plus more.

  • Learn about the appropriate measure of damages in environmental cases, using the backdrop of a textured fact situation
  • Get a primer on EPA, Section 18 Orders
  • Gain a better understanding of the modernization of approvals
  • Hear analysis of EPA statutory causes of action and tort claims
  • Determine the right approach to pollution coverage under the CGL insurance policy
