On February 24, 2012 the Seventh Circuit Bar Association Foundation and the Field Museum of Natural History will present a day long symposium titled “Protecting the Great Lakes.” The fifteen faculty for this symposium are from the United States and Canada, and they are experts in the threats to the Great Lakes from diversion, pollution, climate change, catastrophes, and invasive species, as well as the tangled web of treaties, provincial and state laws, and municipal laws relating to these topics.
This is a very timely symposium for lawyers generally, environmental lawyers, and interested citizens of the United States and Canada.
The symposium is supported financially by foundations, law firms and others, and as a result it is priced to encourage viewership. $100 with MCLE; $25 without MCLE. There will be several participation options: attend in-person at the Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago; view online via Live Webcast; or view online via Delayed Webcast (view uninterrupted program or in segments).
Registration, as well as detailed program information, including faculty bios, is available at www.7thcircuitbar.org.
