Each summer the ELI Summer School convenes a complimentary seminar series that serves as an introduction to the legal and policy foundations of environmental protection in the United States. The weekly brown-bag lunch seminars are taught by experts in their fields, and introduce the audience to the major environmental statutes (including NEPA, Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act, Endangered Species Act, TSCA, RCRA and CERCLA) and land use law. The series ends with an afternoon careers seminar followed by a networking reception.
On Friday 9 June Hogan Lovells Partner Patrick Traylor will teach the Clean Air session. This session is an introduction to the major themes in air quality planning, including permitting programs, standards for mobile sources, special programs developed to improve air quality such as the acid rain program, and noise pollution controls. Patrick will also discuss the developments leading to the enactment of the Clean Air Act in 1970 and its 1990 amendments, and the implementation of regulations related to climate change.
