California Water Law Symposium is this Saturday in San Francisco

This student-organized event will focus on “Diversifying Solutions to Water Governance in California”

If you’re interested in California water, the 20th Annual California Water Law Symposium is a great way to spend this Saturday!

The symposium is a collaborative student-run event that consistently brings together leading minds in water law and policy to discuss California’s critical water issues.  Students from 7 northern California law schools—led by a stellar 4-member team from this year’s host school, the University of San Francisco School of Law—have worked together to organize the 2024 symposium.  This year’s theme is “1913 to Now: Diversifying Solutions to Water Governance in California.”

The agenda includes:

  • Water Law 101  (a great way to gain context for the rest of the day’s discussions if you’re new to water law, or to brush up on it if you’re not)
  • Panel 1: Klamath Dam Removal: Stakeholders, Science, and Sustainability
  • Panel 2: Water Rights Enforcement in California
  • Panel 3: Water Rights: Clarifying the 2023 Water Board Arrowhead Spring Order
  • Panel 4: SGMA*: A Decade in Review
  • Facilitated Racial Equity Discussion
  • Reception

Registration is FREE for students, $10 for tribal members, $25 for non-profit or government attendees, and $40 for general admission.  This price includes all symposium programming, continental breakfast, lunch, and the closing reception.  For an additional charge, attorneys can receive up to 5.75 MCLE credits.

I’ll be there helping present the 2024 California Water Law Writing Prize—and enjoying the rest of the programming.

Hope to see you there!

* SGMA= California’s Sustainable Groundwater Management Act
