MESSAGE FROM THE CHAIR
Welcome to the Los Angeles County Bar Association Environmental Law Section starting our 26th year. We are thrilled to kick off our second 25 years and have many exciting programs planned for 2012-13.
Our 11th Annual Fall Symposium was one of our best programs yet, and our 27th Annual Super Symposium in downtown Los Angeles on April 12, 2013 will be another great informative day. Mark your calendars!!
As always, we will also have some great lunch-hour programs where you can learn about a specific area within our very varied practice specialty and obtain MCLE credit as well. Check this website for more details as the year goes on.
I hope to see you soon at an Environmental Law Section program!
Given our Section's many accomplishments and successes, I am very honored yet humbled to serve as the Environmental Law Section's Chair for 2012-13. Your Officers and I look forward to serving your needs.
Please feel free to email or call me if you have questions or would like to see our Section address something specific in the future.
