The 18th Annual Environmental Law Symposium is the premier general environmental law event in Southern California, bringing together leaders from the private bar, government, academia, non-profits and in-house counsel to address important developments in environmental law. This year’s Fall symposium features Keynote Speaker, Irma Munoz, Chair of the Los Angeles Regional Water Quality Board and will offer three panels focused on: (1) A science and legal update on “Forever Chemicals” such as Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), (2) The future of alternative transportation, (3) AB 617 California’s nonvehicular air pollution criteria.
The symposium will be held at the InterContinental Hotel Los Angeles Century City from 12:00 - 4:30 p.m. Following the conclusion of the symposium, there will be a hosted reception where attendees can catch up with colleagues from around the greater Los Angeles area. We look forward to an engaging and educational fall symposium and we hope to see you there.
