Expert panels will analyze and discuss current trends in the federal courts that affect the future of environmental protection, including:

  • Citizen standing to bring environmental lawsuits, and other procedural issues that affect access to courts;
  • The scope of Congressional authority to enact comprehensive environmental laws;
  • The constitutional status of state and regional climate initiatives; and
  • New and emerging constitutional theories that bear on the future of environmental protection.
