ABA Virtual SEER 28th Fall Conference

October 19, 2020

The American Bar Association’s Section of Environmental, Energy, and Resources is hosting is 28th Annual Conference virtually, October 19 – 27, 2020.

SCS Engineers Senior Vice President of Environmental Services, Mike McLaughlin, PE, JD, will participate in the conference, which will consist of a series of webinars, networking events, fun activities, a keynote address, expert insight panels, and 15 individual panels, scheduled so you can participate in all of them.  Attendees will also have access to a bonus ethics panel, which will be held the week after the conference. In addition, two panels will be featured as free pre-conference webinars.

This virtual conference experience will feature a comprehensive program addressing a wide range of pressing issues facing environment, energy, and resource practitioners, such as:

  • The impacts of climate change on the practice of environmental, energy, and resources law;
  • Enforcement in the midst of federal deregulation;
  • The regulatory life of an interstate pipeline;
  • Plastic pollution: responsibility, liability, and legal solutions; and
  • Skills to effectively engage with agencies.

The ABA will seek 21.5 hours of CLE credit in 60-minute states, and 25.8 hours of CLE credit for this program in 50-minute states. Credit hours are estimated and are subject to each state’s approval and credit rounding rules.

To balance out all that time at your computer, organizers are offering fitness options with a virtual SEER Run Club, yoga, and group bike rides. Returning to the conference this year is the round-table committee networking, the Public Service Project, and “Taste of SEER.” For something more relaxed, you can also connect with fellow attendees during the virtual wine-tasting event.
