Special Institute on the

National Environmental Policy Act

The National Environmental Policy Act plays a pivotal role in the permitting and approval of more natural resources and energy development projects than any other federal law. NEPA is the principal federal charter for the protection of the environment.

With ongoing required federal permitting and approvals on energy and mineral projects, and a new Administration in Washington, an understanding of NEPA law and litigation is of critical importance for natural resource attorneys from government, private practice, and NGOs, as well as for environmental consultants and landmen. The third in the Foundation’s highly successful NEPA series, this two-day Special Institute will open with an overview of the NEPA process, requirements, and standards, and then quickly move to focus on advanced topics and new developments.

Experienced attendees will benefit from deeper insights into critical, cutting-edge topics, while resource professionals who are relatively new to the practice will benefit from the experience of our distinguished speakers. We hope you can join us in Denver to continue the tradition of valuable educational and networking opportunities provided by our NEPA institute.
