Book Talk and Airlie House Conference Debrief

Fifty Years of Environmental and Energy Law

Join the Environmental and Energy Law Program as they host Robert L. Glicksman, J.B. and Maurice C. Shapiro Professor of Environmental Law for a talk about his recently released co-authored book, Reorganizing Government: A Functional and Dimensional Framework. It provides a novel framework for thinking about how to allocate regulatory or management authority both between levels of government (federal, state, and local) and within each of those levels. This was a project that was 8+ years in the making, and we are delighted to invite Professor Glicksman to present some of the key ideas in his book.

50 years ago, Earth Day and the Environmental Law Institute (ELI) were founded at the beautiful setting of Airlie House, near Warrenton, VA, and GW Law
established its Environmental Law Program in Washington, DC. In November, GW Law and ELI returned to the Airlie House to celebrate and reaffirm their commitment to this important work, drawing environmental leaders from industry, nonprofits, and academia to “reimagine” environmental law for the
next 50 years. Join Lin Harmon-Walker, Interim Director of the Environmental and Energy Law Program, Visiting Associate Professor of Law; Donna Attanasio, Senior Advisor for Energy Law Programs; Lee Paddock, former Dean, Environmental and Energy Law Program; Robert L. Glicksman, J. B. and Maurice C. Shapiro Professor of Environmental Law, and Achinthi Vithanage, Visiting Associate Professor of Law and Environmental and Energy Law Fellow to hear about the ideas emerging from that conference.
