Fighting Environmental Deregulation: The Role of the States

Over the past four years, the federal government has promulgated regulations to cripple the National Environmental Policy Act, weaken Clean Water Act enforcement, undercut state emissions standards, and reduce oversight of toxic chemicals. State coalitions have responded vigorously, using litigation and other tools to safeguard some of the nation's most valuable and effective environmental statutes.

Join the ACS Stanford Law Student Chapter for a panel discussion with environmental litigators from four state departments of justice--California, Colorado, Oregon, and New York--will discuss how states are fighting the Trump Administration's assault on environmental protections. They will also discuss how the election will impact the evolution of environmental law and policy in the United States.

The event will be moderated by Deborah Sivas, Luke W. Cole Professor of Environmental Law. Professor Sivas is one of the leading environmental litigators in the country, and the director of the Stanford Environmental Law Clinic.

Co-sponsored by the Stanford Environmental Law Society.
