Water Law Institute



The Rocky Mountain Mineral Law Foundation, and our co-sponsor the American Bar Association, Environment, Energy, and Resources Section, are excited to host the new two-day Water Law Institute in beautiful San Diego, California. Water is a critical and finite resource, and water management impacts all aspects of environmental and resource law. In an era of limited supply and increasing demand, knowledge of the emerging issues in water law is a must, not only for water law practitioners but also for all environmental and resource professionals.  

This Institute provides the only truly national dialogue on water law, addressing issues of water supply and water quality, from both eastern and western perspectives. Our distinguished speakers will provide insight and analysis of the key topics impacting the acquisition, management, and use of water, including issues relating to integrated water management, use of water in the development of renewable energy, emerging water contamination risks, inter-jurisdictional water disputes, dam removal, stream access and streambed ownership, endangered species, tribal water use, and water management within the Colorado River Basin.
