We are pleased to announce:
Tulane’s 26th Annual
Environmental Law & Policy Summit
February 26th-27th, 2021
The Summit is an annual meeting of scientific and legal experts in various fields within the scope of environmental law and policy, hosted and coordinated by Tulane Law students. We hope you can join us in learning (and earning CLE credit) from this year’s key note speakers, and panelists as we explore this year’s theme: Environmental Justice.
This event is free and open to the public. Both days of the Summit will be held over Zoom. To watch, either follow the watch links found found in the program’s schedule section, or use the link located further down this page.
