Water-related cases of international, national, regional and local import are the focus of the 20th annual Great Lakes Water Conference.
The conference titled “Water in the Courts” will be conducted as a live webinar from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 6.
The conference is sponsored by the College of Law and its Legal Institute of the Great Lakes.
“While the format of the conference this year will be virtual for the first time, the conference promises to be as timely and informative as always,” said Ken Kilbert, professor of law and director of the Legal Institute of the Great Lakes.
The conference will feature six legal experts addressing topics such as litigation about the Enbridge oil pipeline underlying the Straits of Mackinac; a pending U.S. Supreme Court case regarding interstate groundwater allocation; the U.S. Supreme Court’s recent County of Maui decision affecting permitting under the Clean Water Act; challenges to the new federal ‘Waters of the United States’ rule; high water levels and flooding in and around Lake Ontario; and the Lake Erie Bill of Rights.
Registration for the half-day conference is free for the public and $50 for attorneys seeking 3.0 hours of Ohio Continuing Legal Education (CLE) credit.
