About THE SECTION BLOG

The Environmental and Energy Law Section of the New York State Bar Association has a new section blog on our online community. It is intended to provide timely notice of legal events affecting environmental lawyers in the public and private sectors, environmental organizations, and academia. These legal events include recent cases, new regulations, new government policies, and general news of interest on the environmental front. Section members are welcome to contribute. View our blogging policy here.

We are pleased to announce the launch of an Internet-based private online professional Community for the Environmental and Energy Law Section. We invite you to participate. Members of our Section run the gamut from law students and newly admitted attorneys who are just finding their way all the way to national and international experts in many categories of environmental law. We want all of you to share your experiences and your knowledge while also being free to ask questions of others in the Section and participating in the intellectual discourse we hope to generate.
